Each ride-day the Light the Trail team will #Ride4 a victim of suicide to honor and celebrate their life, and to further healthy conversation about this important topic. If there’s someone you’d like us to #Ride4, please visit the #Ride4 page.

Tell us about them…
Mikey’s mischievous smile was just like his heart, open and big. Keeping those around him happy and in good spirits was his daily goal. Besides leaving you with a stomach ache from laughing, he was the family detective. If something was lost, describe what you were looking for and give him five minutes, he’d find it. Even if he had never seen it before. Mikey was also a skilled escape artist. Starting at the age of three when he would belly crawl from his room through the den, avoiding his Dad’s eye line, to the living room and back for a toy when he should have been in bed asleep.
How has your perspective of depression and suicide shifted over time?
My thoughts are the same, but my tolerance for those battling their inner demons has increased.
A small special way we can celebrate them on the road?
Wear green and eat skittles.
Is there a particular favorite song or band of theirs, or one you remember them by?
“I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from The Lion King his favorite movie.
