I am a father of six and have one beautiful granddaughter.  Barbara, who will be joining me again for her 3rd Ride for Youth as an MT and I have been blessed to raise our joined families with few of the incidents or pressures that a lot of our youth are troubled with.  We realise that we have been extremely lucky and that many other families are not in the same position.

I had a brother take his own life, and even now, 25 years on, we still struggle to understand why that happened.  Equally so for a close firend of one of our daughters who took his own life at age 21 with seemingly the whole world open to him.  Again, there is no way to understand the decision or even begin to comprehend the impact this had on family and friends.

By undertaking the Ride for Youth and sharing our experiences, and importantly raising valuable funds for Youth Focus, we believe we can help to make some inroads into the challenges that happen far too often to our youth.
