So here we are again for my 2nd Ride for Youth
New bike, repaired collarbone and a new route but the reason is still the same.
In 2017, WA has recorded its highest suicide rate in more than 20 years, with 409 West Australians taking their own lives last year. Sadly, my sister Claire was one of those 409.
Nationally, there was a 9.1% increase in suicide and accounted for more than one-third of deaths among people aged 15 to 24 years, and more than one-quarter of deaths among those aged 25 to 34.
The work that Youth Focus is doing is making a differences and helping so so many young people. This is crucial to youth of today, raising awareness in society, removing the stigmas of mental health and moving forward into the future together.
I am more than happy to put my love of cycling to good use and raise vital funds towards Youth Focus and in memory of my sister
