SUICIDE IS A SERIOUS ISSUE.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Albuquerque has partnered with Richard Lima to help raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention. After a recent loss of a loved one to suicide, Richard Lima decided to reach people the only way he knows how-on a bike. An endurance athlete and an avid cyclist, Richard has pledged to pedal with a purpose, riding around the country for suicide awareness and prevention.
