Brookfield Rail 1
Occupation: Investigations and Assurance Specialist
2017 will be my first year participating in the Hawaiian Ride for Youth (HR4Y).
I have been riding for the past 15 years and usually spend most of my riding time on a mountain bike. I had heard of the HR4Y before but never gave much thought to what it was in aid of. After hearing about the 2016 rider experiences and researching Youth Focus, I knew I had to be part of the 2017 HR4Y.
Over the past few years I have provided support to family and friends who have suffered the effects of anxiety and depression. As a rider in the HR4Y, I feel privileged to be part of a cause that raises community awarenes of the issues faced by everyday people.
I am fortunate, and very proud to be representing Brookfield Rail, in support of Youth Focus, throughout the ride. I look forward to being part of a community of like minded people, with shared values, in an effort to build awareness around youth mental health and suicide prevention.
