17th Annual Bike for the Brain KC

Bike for the Brain continues its mission to raise awareness and funds for mental health. This annual community bicycle ride raises public awareness that all people have the potential to recover from mental health disorders; that these are brain-based emotional, behavioral, and cognitive experiences that are both common and treatable.

This is a signature fundraising event for Mental Health America of the Heartland (MHAH), a 501(c)(3) organization. The goals of Bike for the Brain are to raise funds for MHAH to enhance the lives of people with mental health challenges and to raise public awareness that mental health disorders are brain-based, emotional, and behavioral experiences that are both common and treatable.

The event is finished.
