Occupation: Director Learning and Teaching I Professor
Years Participated: 2016
I completed the Ride for Youth for the first time in 2016. While it might sound cliched to say that it was a life changing experience, I can't really find any better way to describe it. My main motivation for joining last year was to get fit while supporting a great cause. However, 'the cause' quickly became the focus as I met the amazing team at Youth Focus and heard stories of struggle that our youth face daily. We all know someone who wrestles with depression. We may even know someone (either directly or indirectly) who has faced suicide or who, sadly, has suicided. I am priviledged to be a part of the RFY which raises money for Youth Focus to be able to support people in these circumstances.
