Gibson Ride Don’t Hide 2021: Triple Your Impact!

Triple Your Impact With Gibson Energy!

On Saturday, June 26, 2021, Gibson’s Ride Don’t Hide team will get together for their 2nd Move for Mental Health campaign. Their goal is to raise $25,000 in total donations, while each pledging to cover 50 – 100km of cycling.

All donations made will receive double matching from Gibson Energy, tripling your donation! To donate, please visit Gibson’s Community Fundraiser page.

Why Mental Health?

Here are a few reasons why you should consider supporting Gibson’s cause:

  • It’s more common than you think – 1 in 5 people in Canada will personally experience a mental health problem or illness
  • It’s local – Alberta recently saw a 30% increase in suicide rates, which has been correlated to layoffs in the oil and gas industry, and that rate was before COVID-19
  • It’s global – mental illness is the number one disability in the world
  • It’s for the future – Between 10% and 20% of Canadian youth are affected, with suicide being the leading cause of death
