Cyclists biking for mental health awareness

The Inn at Folkston housed the bikers traveling 777 miles from Atlanta, Georgia to Miami, Florida whose goals were to create awareness and fund programs that aid mental health.

An 11-person group with A2MIA, INC., a non-profit organization, traveled through Folkston on a journey to create awareness and fundraise for mental health, specially City of Refuge and Lotus House. The group began in Atlanta, Georgia and finished the 777 mile trip in Miami, Florida.

Founder Crista Cue, a.k.a Veronica Vega, explained that the organization first came about in 2016 when she already had plans to travel between the two states and decided to bike the distance instead of drive. She found that the ride provides people with a unique insight on life and a potential for discoveries not typically made on a usual day-to-day basis.
