Brookfield Rail 2
Occupation: Business owner
To my Family , Friends and Colleagues .
This year Ive committed to riding in the 2017 Hawaiian Ride for Youth and Im looking for your support !!
Im Riding for TEAM Brookfield Rail 2 which Im priveledged to be apart of and I thank them for the generosity in supporting such a great cause.
(HR4Y) The ride's main objective is to raise awareness and $$ for Youth Suicide prevention programmes (Youth Focus run the programme's) -
Our Story.. : We lost a good friend a couple of years ago - kye was our neighbour (26 yrs old) - His parents, Ian and Amanda are still our neighbours. Kye had an infectious personality / life of the party - a gentle giant (Jeez he could eat), One of those guys who never had a bad word to say about anyone ,always positive, had a large group of friends - Newly married to Jamie - Kye would do anything for anyone at a drop of a hat - no strings attached - that was Kye.
The day he died - On a piece of paper it read - "this will be the last selfish thing I ever do" !! That was all he wrote.
As a parent of two girls I cant imagine what Ian - Amanda must be going through to lose someone they made together. No -one could unless you have had someone close to you die.
His death affected so many people - It affected my wife and I , It affected my 5 - 6 yr old girls / It still affect's me now - I have a tear in my eyes while writing this.
- IMAGINE if kye had seeked help for his depression through a Youth Focus Programme ?
- IMAGINE if by donating $50 - $75 - $100 $$ we can save a kye or a brother or a sister or a parent through a youth Focus counsellor ?
All Donations are Tax deductable and best of all you will feel bloody good about yourself for donating to such a great cause :)
My target is $10001 but im sure we can blow that figure out of the water.
So please get onboard and DONATE -
Thanks again -
