Hawaiian Ride for Youth is one of Australia's premier charity events. It will held between 21st and 25th March, 2017. While cycling through towns in WA's South West, Great Southern, Wheatbelt and Mid west, we will visit highschools to engage and inform students on issues of Youth suicide, depression and self-harm and the services that Youth Focus provide.
I have previously been a rider in the Hawaiian Rider for Youth in 2012 and 2014, so this will be my third ride. I am a mother of three young boys and I am very aware of the challenges associated with youth suicide, depression and self harm. It is a topic very close to my heart.
I am prepared for the prospect of early morning training sessions, the effort to raise $5000 in sponsorship and the discipline of undertaking 7000km of training over the next six months however this is nothing compared to the challenges faced by our youth of today.
I kindly ask you to consider making a donation to this great cause to help raise awareness of the services provided by Youth Focus.
