Australia’s premier charity event for the prevention of youth suicide and depression

The Hawaiian Ride for Youth is held annually over 4.5 days, with riders travelling from Albany or Jurien Bay to Perth over a total of more than 3000kms to raise funds and awareness for Youth Focus. While cycling through towns in WA’s South West, Great Southern, Wheatbelt and Central the riders visit high schools to engage and inform students on issues of youth suicide, depression, anxiety and self-harm, as well as the services that Youth Focus provides.
