It is a great privilege to once again be involved for the 4th consecutive year in supporting such a great cause and having the opportunity to share the experience with a group of amazing, like minded people.
Why do I keep coming back?
Having done the ride and visited the schools, I've seen the impact that the ride and Youth Focus have which continues to bring me back.
The ride has a direct impact at a grass roots level by targeting our youth and raising awareness regarding mental health (~75% of mental illnesses present before their 25th birthday), whilst also raising much needed funds that allow Youth Focus to continue to provide much needed support through the provision of free counselling services and preventative / educational sessions.
I'm looking forward to the 6 months of training, fundraising and the 700km of riding from Albany to Perth in order to support this great cause.
