This event is aimed at providing all new participants in the event with an introduction to Youth Focus and our work in the community. This is a great way to find out exactly who we support, how we do it and importantly it will highlight the vital role the Hawaiian Ride for Youth plays in supporting young West Australian’s. You will hear very real stories from a Youth Focus counsellor which will really bring home the impact our work has on young people.
It seems like we have only just finished this year’s successful ride but planning is well and truly under way for the 2014 Hawaiian Ride for Youth. The committee is already putting the final touches on next year’s Ride which I have no doubt will once again prove to be an amazing experience for both new and previous riders.
2013 marked the 11th running of the annual Hawaiian Ride for Youth from Albany to Perth with this year again increasing awareness in the community of Youth Focus, and a fantastic fundraising outcome of over $1.5 million. The 2013 Ride saw 79 riders depart Albany with 43 taking on the original coastal route and 36 the new inland route with the assistance of our 26 hard working support crew.
