Another Stop for Clara Hughes in the Maritimes - Saint John, New-Brunswick by

Journal Notes

After her big stop in the Capital of the province, Clara Hughes and her team of blue cyclers will arrive in the city of Saint John, New Brunswick on April 9th. Not to be confused with the capital of Newfoundland, St-John’s, Saint John is a large city located at approximately 110 kilometers from Clara’s last stop in Fredericton, New-Brunswick. Clara is set to arrive in this city of 68,000 citizens at around 3 p.m. at the Peer 126 Mural, 99 Station St, Saint John.

Peer 126 is a Horizon Health Network in the region that deals with a variety of different divisions including mental health in youth and adults alike.

Yennah Hurley is the MindCare Manager at the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation and also the community champion for this segment of the Big Ride. From 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Mr. Hurley and Clara’s team will host an event focusing on lifting the stigma that surrounds mental health. It will be held at the Boys and Girls Club, 1 Paul Harris St, Saint John. The event will also be hosted and sponsored in part by MindCare and titled “Saint John Reverses the Tide: an evening with the champions of mental health”.

The city of Saint John is that largest in New-Brunswick. Its population is evenly dispersed over 300 square kilometers, but this populated core is surrounded by thousands of kilometers of a pristine untouched greenbelt of faun, flora and forestry. Its topography is hilly but nothing too big for Clara and her experienced team of cyclists!

Next stop, Moncton!
