Occupation: Communications Consultant / Director
This is my first year in the Hawaiian Ride for Youth from Albany to Perth. The 700km journey will be a challenge but the effort is for a great cause.
Youth Focus uses the funds we raise to provide personalised support to young people who are vulnerable and at risk of suicide. Last year, about 2500 young people reached out for help and another 15,000 took part in preventative and educational programs.
As someone who was born and raised in country WA, I understand the need to ensure mental health services are made available to our rural and remote communities.
All donations are tax deductible and 100 per cent of the funds raised go to help young people who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts, depression and self-harming behaviours.
Do hope you can dig deep for the cause.
