Occupation: Exercise Physiologist
This will be my third R4Y. As an Exercise Physiologist who uses 'exercise as medicine' to prevent and manage chronic mental and physical illnesses and conditions, and a mother to four beautiful children I feel both compelled and privelidged to be able to take action and contribute to this great community service.
The highlight of the ride is without question seeing the look on the childrens faces when the old people in bad lycra come riding into thier school. They are excited, they are humbled and surprised that these strangers care about them, thier mental state and thier happiness.
The objective is to raise funds to continue and expand the effective counselling services in the schools that we visit and others. Being on the Wheatbelt Route this year I am looking forward to visiting new schools and meeting the children/adolescents of Kojonup, Wagin, Narrogin and Pinjarra.
