The B.A.D Ride 19 Our Vision

We foster hope and resilience one connection at a time.

100% of the monies raised by B.A.D. Ride participants will continue to support ongoing
services and new initiatives that build both individual and community resiliency.

Thank you for riding to answer the call, so we can be there for those most at risk, every hour of every day.

Canada's oldest and largest Distress Centre
As Canada‘s oldest and largest helpline, we now proudly celebrate our 50th Anniversary. Distress Centres has continued to provide a 24/7 emotional safety net for the vulnerable and at-risk. Each year more than 120,000 calls are placed to one of our crisis support services, including the first of its kind in-subway suicide hotline, Crisis Link. We're there after-hours, when other services are closed, providing free of charge emotional first aid to those in need.
Universal access is provided through a TTY line for the hearing impaired and the use of a 173-language interpreter service. The Survivor Support Program offers face-to-face trauma/grief counselling to those experiencing the impact of a death by suicide or homicide. Working with community partners, we deliver life-enhancing programs and skills training in suicide prevention and crisis intervention - creating a continuum of care for those who are marginalized, experience abuse or emotionally vulnerable.
