"Depression Doesn't Ride is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that came out of the loss of my father, Tim Boylan, who died by suicide after a long struggle with addiction and depression. It is my hope to help find new treatments and assistance for all those who suffer and to help families stay together."

SPREADING THE WORD
April riding in
Covid-19 has continued to change our world. So many have been affected by this pandemic in traumatic ways. Now more then ever there is a need to support groups and organizations that provide mental health services for people who struggle with life's challenges. This is our call to action. This is our time to come together and support those suffering with depression, anxiety, addiction and suicidal thoughts. The fallout from Covid-19 with social distancing, grave illness and personal losses will continue to impact so many in our society, we must prepare for a greater demand on social and emotional supports. Please give whatever you can. Every little bit put together can make a big impact.Thank you for supporting Depression Doesn't Ride, a non profit organization 501(c)(3)
Reaching the community
Each year I participate in events highlighting depression and suicide to help break down the stigma around these issues. I also hold a annual charity bike ride that started with friends and family and has grown to include a larger community of concerned people.
Eliminating shame is one of the most important things we can do to battle the disease of depression because shame kills. So, we show up with our heads held high ready to do our part and support one another. I am hoping for your support. Money raised will go towards depression research and suicide prevention.
We will continue to update this website with when and where there will be events we are partnering in and ways for you to contribute.
ANNUAL BIKE RIDE
Although we have held an annual bike ride for our cause for several years, this year, with life in continued flux we are not holding the group bike ride event. However, we continue to raise funds for our cause by participating in other events and activities and providing information about and funding to local and national organizations that help those who struggle with suicidal ideation and attempted suicide, alcoholism, addiction and depression.
We appreciate your continued support of Depression Doesn't Ride and our mission to raise awareness and fund help for those who suffer. We hope you will join us this September Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month. Go out for a walk, run or ride, snap and post a picture to share with others that it takes all of us to spread the word, take away the stigma, and help people get the help they need.
And of course, donations made here at our website are always gratefully appreciated to help the many non profit organizations we find doing work to help those who are struggling with mental health issues.
