ASHEVILLE, N.C., June 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — CooperRiis Healing Community is pleased to announce Ride Above Mental Illness, a peer-to-peer fundraising event. Inspired by Western North Carolina resident Jeremiah Reiner, CooperRiis will be raising awareness of adult mental health challenges and CooperRiis’ response to helping adults needing residential mental health healing.
Jeremiah is riding the 2022 Tour Divide, an “Ultra-Endurance Bike-Packing Event“. The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route covers 2,745 miles from Banff, Canada to Antelope Wells, New Mexico.
Ride Above Mental Illness was inspired by Jeremiah’s own mental health journey since childhood.

The purpose of this event is to bring awareness to the concept of mental illness and recovery. CooperRiis’ Ride Above Mental Illness is an opportunity to engage alumni, their families, and the community at large while celebrating our longstanding involvement in the field of mental health recovery.
