VINTAGE IRON AND ROAD 2 RECOVERY JOIN FORCES TO ADDRESS DEPRESSION

October 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$35

Vintage Iron owner Rick Doughty, recently lost his son Max to the devastating effects of depression. In Max’s honor, he has reached out to Road 2 Recover to create an event designed to generate funds specifically geared for injured riders and racers that may need the resources to deal with the onslaught of depression.

Fighting the Dark
Depression is so much more than the disappointment of not making the podium or being side lined with an injury. Depression may start with harmless disappointment but unchecked it can advance like many other illnesses, to the point that it becomes debilitating or even fatal. Depression is not the result of a negative attitude but quite the opposite. Upbeat, positive people can succumb to the overwhelming effects. The real physical manifestations are many. Distortion of thinking / reason, body /joint pain, appetite loss and worst of all, loss of hope.

People don’t choose to be depressed but they can choose how to combat it. Joining together it is a winnable fight. The life you save may one day be your own or someone you love.
