Martin Spriggs is used to challenges. A military veteran and health care worker, his hearts concern for his for mentally and emotionally wounded Canadian military veterans put him out on the road. Literally. In discussion with YLC MD Martin decided he would attempt a cross-country bike ride to promote suicide prevention, raise awareness of mental health issues among his fellow vets and link them with appropriate resources.
On June 3, 2014 at mile zero in Victoria BC, Martin climbed on his bike and set off through the Rockies with the objective of completing the journey in St John's, Newfoundland.
Mission was accomplished in September, 2014. Martin is pictured dipping his bike into the Atlantic Ocean in St John's.
