May is National Mental Health Awareness Month

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month. It’s a time to raise awareness and help reduce the stigma associated with caring for our mental health.

Magnum Bikes believes that mental health is just as important as physical health. So it’s our goal to promote ways that our community can take care of both. And we hosted an event at our Scottsdale store earlier this year to do just that.

Let’s recap the event and share how you can take charge of your mental health.

If you’re experiencing mental health challenges right now, please skip ahead to:

Recapping Our Scottsdale Mental Health Awareness Event

The Scottsdale community showed up in force for our Mental Health Awareness Event, including Mayor David Ortega (center), who delivered a speech during the event.

Earlier this year, our Scottsdale store hosted an event in partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to raise awareness about mental health in our community.

We welcomed members of the Scottsdale community for a fun-filled day, including:

  • Free group yoga and guided meditation

  • Free ice cream, compliments of local favorite Handel’s Ice Cream

  • A group ride with e-bikes provided by Magnum free of charge

  • A speech and meet-and-greet with Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega

A group of people spread out in a parking lot, all with electric bikes ready for a group e-bike ride starting from the Magnum Bikes Scottsdale store during our Mental Health Awareness Event

Scottsdale community members choose their favorite Magnum Bikes model to test out during our group ride.

We were proud to host this special event and provide a space for our community to connect with one another and engage in honest discussions about mental health.

Take Care Of Your Mental Health

If you’re not in crisis right now, you can take preventive steps to care for your mental health on your own.
