“Starting the first week of March 2020 I will attempt to ride my bike from San Diego, California to Portland, Maine.  The goal of this journey of almost 4000 miles, which I hope to complete in two months, is to raise funds for suicide prevention, erase the stigma surrounding suicide and its causes, to encourage those suffering from mental illness to seek treatment, and to show support for the families and friends of the 30,000 Americans who die by suicide and the 20 million people that suffer from depression each year.”

I also have a Facebook fundraiser called “Chris rides across the country for suicide prevention”

Folks can see my interviews with survivors and families there.

Thank you so much!
