|RIDE FOR MENTAL HEALTH: BRANDON MARSHALL, NFL WIDE RECEIVER, WILL HOST A MOTORCYCLE RIDE ON MAY 16 TO SUPPORT MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS. THE RIDE WILL START AT LINDEN OAKS IN NAPERVILLE AND END AT THE STARVED ROCK HARLEY-DAVIDSON DEALERSHIP IN OTTAWA.
The 2nd Annual Brandon Marshall Mental Health Awareness Ride will be held Saturday, May 16.

Marshall, an NFL wide receiver, formerly with the Chicago Bears, now with the New York Jets, was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2010. Since then, he and his wife, Michi, co-founded Project 375, a nonprofit organization with a mission to end the stigma associated with mental illness, advocate for unprecedented awareness and paint the world lime green (the official color for mental health awareness).
