Everyone knows that it's important and normal to take care of one's physical health and Mpower endeavours to make people aware that it is just as important and normal to take care of one's mental health. ABHI Ride to Mpower - the cycle ride is our way of reaching out to the community, in order to highlight that a healthy mind is as important as a healthy body. This is the fourth cycle ride we're doing and as participation increases, I hope that it will encourage more people to embrace a more holistic approach to wellness and self-care."
