• Come celebrate life by riding NAMI Utah: The GLMR.
    Join us for the sixth annual ride for Hope, Healing, and Happiness.

    The GLMR (Gary Ludlow Memorial Ride) is a century bike ride that was started in 2009 to honor a friend, father and avid cyclist, Gary Ludlow and his family. One day while out on a ride, Gary suffered a severe bike crash that triggered the onset of depression. For several years he struggled to manage it through medication and exercise, but ultimately was overcome and taken by suicide.

    Since its inception, the GLMR has become Utah’s Premier Cycling Event for Mental Illness. Its purpose is to raise awareness, honor those whose lives have been taken and help those currently affected to find help, hope, healing and happiness. Proceeds from the event go to NAMI Utah.

    NAMI Utah (National Alliance on Mental Illness) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure the dignity and improve the lives of individuals and families who live with mental illness through support, education and advocacy.

    In February of 2014, NAMI Utah and the GLMR group established a mutual partnership. In recognition of that, the event has been rebranded as NAMI UTAH: The GLMR. Learn more by visiting us at www.NAMIUT.org and www.TheGLMR.com.

    Your participation and support in this event are greatly appreciated.

  • Riders, volunteers and donors can start or join a team, and the process is easily done through the link below, or at time of registration or donation. Form a corporate team and increase your organization’s visibility as a strong member of the community.
    With great prizes and recognition for teams with top fundraising locally and nationally, forming a team is a great way to support NAMI Utah and The GLMR, help us build our programs in the community and help fight stigma!
    Team Fundraising Rules
    Donations to a team (through a team fundraising page or offline) are split equally among all team members. The amount is added to team members fundraising account’s and increases their overall funds raised.

    Donations to an individual (through an individual fundraising page or offline) benefit only that individual. However, individual funds are represented in team totals, and top fundraising teams will be rewarded!
