The Hawaiian Ride for Youth is an Australian multiple award winning charity event. The 15th Ride will take place over 5 days commencing 21 March, 2017. Cycling through towns in WA's South West, Great Southern, Mid West and Wheat belt the 180 cyclists, and support crews, will visit 19 highs schools to engage and inform students on issues of youth suicide, depression, anxiety and self-harming and the free services that Youth Focus provides to support them.

All our young people and their families should have equal opportunity to support and care. Youth Focus provides that and I feel very grateful and honoured to have been a part of this Ride for the past 8 years to continue that support.

Myself, and each rider, has the challenge of waking up early over 6 months (ugg) for 7000km of training, in addition to fund raising $5000 in sponsorship, however, this is minor compared to the challenges faced by many of our youth of today. 

 

I kindly ask you to consider making a donation to this great cause to help support the many wonderful services Youth Focus provides for our youth and their families. Thank you.
