3rd Annual LIPF TD Five Boro
Please join The LIPF for our 3rd year riding for the research and treatment of depression and suicide prevention.
Every year, one in four adults will suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. In 2011, the CDC reported that nearly 500,000 people were treated in emergency departments for self-inflicted injuries. The active military suicide rate continues to surpass combat-related deaths.
ONLY 61 percent of Americans think it appropriate to tell family members about a mental illness diagnosis, according to a recent study commissioned by the New York City Metro chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Just 43 percent approve of telling friends about a diagnosis, and just 13 percent of telling co-workers.
It's time to make a difference.
This is our second year as an official charity partner with the TD Five Boro Bike Tour and we hope you will consider riding for our foundation. You will receive a VIP pass to the tour at the front of the pack, including breakfast & lunch and our 2014 LIPF Jersey.
Of course we will be stopping at Pedro's for a margarita and group photo before the final ride into Staten Island.
