9/11 Ride of Hope seeks to reduce stigma of mental health issues

4C Health Solutions is proud to support the Quell Foundation and their 9/11 Ride of Hope which seeks to educate and create greater awareness and understanding of the emotional toll our nation’s first responders experience through their day-to-day lives and the long-term impact on their well-being.

4C employee Christin Deacon first became involved with the Quell Foundation when serving on a panel to discuss how leadership can create a healthier workplace culture that reduces mental health stigma.  In a surprising turn of events, Deacon took the panel opportunity to share her own personal story of struggles with mental health and became an example of what it means to lead through example.  Deacon has been a staunch advocate for mental health awareness and stigma reduction for the Quell Foundation ever since.  When the opportunity arose to increase awareness and raise funds for First Responders on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, she jumped at the opportunity.

The 9/11 Ride of Hope is traveling as a peloton of 20 cyclists and started at the 9/11 Memorial in NYC, NY on 9/7, is stopping in Wilmington, DE on 9/8 and will end at the Pentagon in Arlington, VA, on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The group will include active, retired, and surviving family members of first responders, many of whom responded to the horrific events of September 11, 2001.
