MEDIA ADVISORY: Canadian Tire and Gas+ support Clara's Big Ride with Welcome to Town event

TORONTO, March 17, 2014 /CNW/ - If you're in London, join us as we cheer on Canadian Olympic medalist, Clara Hughes, on her 110-day journey across Canada in support of Bell Let's Talk mental health awareness.

Canadian Tire and Gas+ are national presenting partners with Bell Let's Talk mental health awareness, "Clara's Big Ride", and will be hosting a Welcome to Town event to show its support for Clara as she bikes across Canada to raise awareness on mental health. Clara will finish her day of riding at the Canadian Tire and Gas+ Welcome to Town event and will speak about her personal experience with mental health. There will also be lots of giveaways, activities, snacks, and prizes to be won for the public at the event.

Canadian Tire and Gas+ understand the power sport can have in sustaining good mental health – we are proud to be partnering with Bell and support Clara Hughes as she continues to help Canadians lead active and healthy lives.
