Empowered to Ride
Empowered to Ride is youth coming together to improve their mental wellness through physical action. As we all know having a health body is an important step to having a healthy mind. In addition to teaching mountain bike riding and maintinance skills, the group of 10 youth also learn about the importance of mental and physical wellness.
CEO & Founder of Empowered to Ride
Caleb Foote is the visionary CEO and Founder of the Empowered to Ride Program, a groundbreaking initiative that blends his fervor for mountain biking and physical fitness with his deep understanding of mental wellness. Caleb's journey began in 2015 when he graduated from Sussex Regional High School, and in 2017, he further honed his skills by completing his education at New Brunswick Community College.
Having traversed various terrains across North America and Europe on his mountain bike, Caleb's passion for biking has become more than just a hobby - it's a way of life. He recognizes the profound link between physical activity and mental well-being, and it's this realization that fuels his dedication to the Empowered to Ride Program.
Empowered to Ride isn't just about mountain biking; it's about transformation. Caleb's program engages youth throughout New Brunswick on a weekly basis, imparting essential mountain biking techniques and bike maintenance skills. Beyond that, it focuses on nurturing mental wellness, a critical aspect often overlooked. Through this program, Caleb seeks to empower young individuals, helping them build resilience, self-confidence, and emotional strength.
What sets Caleb's program apart is not just his personal journey, but his commitment to bringing together a team of passionate coaches who are not only avid mountain bikers but also ardent advocates for mental and physical health. By intertwining their passion with their mission, they inspire the youth to realize the potential for change within themselves and their communities.
Caleb Foote's Empowered to Ride Program is more than an endeavor; it's a movement that revolutionizes how we perceive physical activity, mental health, and their intricate connection.
