  • Six-time Olympian Clara Hughes to ride her bike around Canada, visiting schools and community groups in every province and territory to talk about mental health

MONTREAL, Oct. 10, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today announced the Official Route and National Partners for Clara's Big Ride for Bell Let's Talk, the national bicycle tour around Canada by Clara Hughes in support of mental health.

Beginning March 14, 2014, and spanning 110 days, Clara's Big Ride will cover 12,000 kilometres through every province and territory, visiting 95 communities and connecting Canadians to the cause of mental health at the grassroots level.

"I can't wait to ride to communities in every corner of the country, meeting Canadians where they live and talking to them about how together we can make a real and positive difference in the nation's mental health," said Clara. "From Saguenay to Saskatoon, Kuujjuaq to Cranbrook, Fredericton to Fort McPherson and everywhere in between, mental illness directly impacts 1 in 5 Canadians and affects all of us in some way. I'm looking forward to sharing stories with people in these communities and so many more as we fight the stigma around mental illness and drive awareness and action in mental health."

Official Route Clara's Big Ride kicks off in Toronto on March 14, 2014, rolling east through Ontario, Québec and Atlantic Canada, before returning to Northern Québec and heading northwest across Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and Yukon. Crossing the Arctic Circle on the legendary Dempster Highway, Clara will journey south to Vancouver Island and head east through British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Northern Ontario before finishing her ride on Canada Day, July 1, 2014, in Ottawa.
