A charity motorcycle ride is happening today, the proceeds will go towards mental health inniticatives for Canadian veterans.
Bomb the Bruce is an event put on by Military Minds Inc and the Freedom Riders and is the first of three rides happening this summer.
The ride begins at 8:30am fox Harley Davidson near Owen Sound, goes down highway 6 to sauble, north to lion's head, over to Wiarton then Kemble mountain and ending at Bombshell Stella's where food and drinks will be available
The $25 cost per rider includes a meal at Bombshell Stella's. Mike Tarry from Military Minds Inc spoke about picking Grey and Bruce for the ride saying " Owen Sound and the surrounding areas have always given us and veterans overwhelming support, it is only fitting to host these events in the area where we feel so supported."
The hope with rides like this is to help break the stigma around mental health concerns in the veteran community with issues like PTSD.
