In a world filled with chaos and turmoil, the one thing that does not discriminate against anyone is suicide.
Our mission is to increase awareness around the subject of suicide.

Saturday, September 8, 2018 at 9 AM - 5 PM

Departing from Red River Exhibition Park, then continuing on to Portage La Prairie
for lunch, the winding up in Brandon for a silent auction and 50/50.

I am sure you have all heard the term Pay It Forward, well, I have started a new movement called Patch It Forward. A few year's back our daughters best friend took her own life. The families wishes were that people make a donation to the Manitoba Suicide Prevention & Support Line that is operated by Klinic. Having known this young lady for as long as I had, I wanted to do more than just a single donation. With the help of my wife, Ruth-Ann, my friend Rod and a few others, I came up with the LEAN ON ME patch. Each patch sells for $10.00, half of which gets donted to Klinic, the other half goes to making more patches. Patches are currently available through River City Rides or myself or my wife Ruth-Ann.

If patches are not your thing, check out KB2 Clothing in the sponsor section, and you can peruse the various options of clothing available with LEAN ON ME on it. Proceeds of all clothing sold will be donated to our cause.
