What is Light on PTSD?

Light On PTSD is a not-for-profit organization that increases awareness around Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and gathers funds to support future initiatives for families struggling with post traumatic stress. Our cycling events are instrumental in reaching out to the community and encouraging trauma survivors to come out of the shadows and receive support, connect, share, discover resources, and ultimately know that they are not alone and there is help available.

PTSD can effect anyone at any time. It is not defined by the uniform you wear, or where you go to work. The National Institute of Mental Health defines PTSD as a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. It can effect the mother, the father, the child, the veteran, the first responder, the extended family, friends, co-workers…anyone can suffer with post traumatic stress. Together we can support one another and make a difference. We can shine a light on PTSD, support the community and raise funds and awareness to help others.
