The Hawaiian Ride for Youth is held annually over 4.5 days, with riders travelling from Albany or Geraldton 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 Mid West 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.
As part of their fundraising, the Hawaiian Ride for Youth riders and teams host a number of events to generate funds and awareness for Youth Focus. Support the riders and teams in their fundraising endeavours by attending an event and getting involved.
