CHEYENNE, Wyo. (RELEASE) - On June 28th Mark Wells and Patrick Graham with The Cycle For Life arrived at their destination of Baniff National Park Alberta Canada to complete the end of their awareness and fundraising campaign for suicide prevention and mental health awareness riding over 1,000 miles on their trek. On July 7th, Founder of The Cycle For Life presented Grace For 2 Brothers Foundation’s Director of Operations a check for $3,717.00.
“This ride proved to be the most difficult of all my cross-country treks. We were confronted by many circumstances that left us feeling defeated. Just one of these obstacles can make a ride challenging, but facing strong headwinds, heavy rains, cold temps, and long hills at the same time pushed us both into thoughts of quitting. Knowing that we were not alone in this challenge helped us to continue on. Once we made it to the end of the ride, feeling accomplished, we had the best days surrounded by beautiful scenery. The pain was temporary, but the memories will last a lifetime!” stated Patrick Graham, Founder of The Cycle For Life.
“Though the ride was challenging, Pat and Mark did an incredible job of being there for one another through that literal storm of life. We know they were physically and mentally drained, but through daily communication with them… that moment when the sunshine came out was such a beautiful celebration! So is today, we are beyond thankful for the support we received from Pat, Mark, and all those that donated!” stated Rhianna Brand.
