On May 23, 2020, Litens fielded a team of 11 riders in the Jack Ride 2020 charity event, which this year due to social distancing was held virtually with riders either completing time on bicycle trainers or riding by themselves in the great outdoors.
The Jack Ride is Canada’s ride for youth mental health. It is organized by Jack.org whose mission is; To make sure all young people have access to the mental health support they deserve. Young people are struggling right now with social isolation, anxiety, and uncertainty. The demand for Jack.org services has spiked, and every dollar raised helps ensure that Jack.org’s mental health education and resources remain viable and pertinent in the wake of COVID-19. The Jack Ride is Jack.org’s largest fundraising event, and Litens is proud to be a part of it for the third year.
This year marks the 11th anniversary of the Jack Ride, and the event itself raised $1.3 million, which is an exceptional result in light of the current fundraising difficulties. Our team collectively raised $35,440. A great effort Team Litens!BACK TO NEWS
