Subject:         CMHA HKPR Launches 2nd Annual Change the Cycle Fundraising Event in Peterborough

Date:              Saturday, June 15th, 2024

Time:             9:00 a.m. registration, 10:00 a.m. start

The Canadian Mental Health Association Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (CMHA HKPR) is pleased to announce the launch of the second annual ‘Change the Cycle’ fundraising event, presented by Tom’s Heating & Cooling and Corus Entertainment. This year’s event will take place on June 15th, at Nicholls Oval in Peterborough.

The funds from this year’s Change the Cycle will support Youth and Family Mental Health programming. “By supporting Change the Cycle, you are supporting youth and family mental health services in our region and ensuring that the mental health needs of our youth and caregivers are met,” says Jack Veitch, Manager of Community Engagement and Education with CMHA HKPR. “Youth and caregiver supports are an important factor in fostering a healthier and more supportive community for all.”

In 2023, CMHA HKPR launched Change the Cycle with the hopes of creating a cycling event for mental health awareness where all the money raised was kept right here, in our community. Last year, at the inaugural event, Change the Cycle raised over $40,000 for CMHA HKPR’s Garden Homes project.

This year, cyclists can register for a 4k, 12k or 26k ride along the Rotary Trail in Peterborough. Please visit to register as an individual or a team. Registration is $20 per person and children 12 and under register for free. Registration includes the ride, a t-shirt, and a BBQ lunch.

CMHA HKPR would like to sincerely thank our presenting sponsors Toms Heating & Cooling and Corus Entertainment’s the Wolf 101.5, Global Peterborough, and 100.5 Fresh Radio. We would also like to thank Diamond Sponsor, Merrett’s Home Hardware, Silver Sponsor, CIBC Wealth – The Pyle Group, and event sponsor BMO.
