Enough is Enough, a bike ride from Whistler, B.C. to Cape Spear in Newfoundland aims to raise awareness and funding resources to reduce depression and suicide in young people.

The riders will be traveling through Wolfville on Sunday, July 28. They are expected mid-afternoon in Waterfront Park, according to Mayor Jeff Cantwell.

Founders of The Kelty Foundation, Ginny and Kerry Dennehy, are cycling across Canada. In 2001, they lost their 17-year-old son, Kelty, to suicide. Using their personal experience for positive action, the 60-year-olds launched a foundation and raised more than $5 million for mental health resources for youth.

Now, they are aiming to raise another $2 million during their ride. The Denneheys aim to to create a Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre in every province and territory in Canada.
