Ride For Youth

A Youth Focus event for the prevention of youth suicide and depression

Hawaiian Ride For Youth


Thank you for your interest in participating in the Hawaiian Ride for Youth.

The Ride will depart Albany on Tuesday 24 March 2015 and travel approximately 700km through the South-West, finishing in Perth on Saturday 28 March 2015.  Your participation in the Hawaiian Ride for Youth will not only provide you with an unbelievable personal experience but will most importantly raise awareness of an important cause.

Established in 1994, Youth Focus provides services to young people 12-25 years old who are showing early signs associated with suicide, depression and self-harm. Youth Focus is a West Australian not-for-profit organisation that operates within the Perth metropolitan area and regional areas including Rockingham, Mandurah, Bunbury, Albany and Geraldton. The opening of these regional offices was made possible partly by monies raised by the riders of the Hawaiian Ride for Youth.

Below is an overview of the necessary requirements to participate.  As a condition of entry each Rider commits to:

  • Pay a non refundable donation of $1,350.00
  • Raising $5,000.00 in donations
  • Riding 700km from Albany to Perth
  • Training for 6 months, 3 days per week
  • Taking time off work and being away from family for a week to participate in the event
  • Achieving all of this around your existing commitments to family, work and your community
