Looking for a group to ride with in Perth, following a return to WA after many years, I heard about Peter Trench and subsequently the Hawaiian Ride for Youth.
Motivated by my own experience losing my sister Dianne 20 years ago and the impact on our family, and thoughts of my gorgeous husband Morris who loved cruising on his bike and encouraged me to keep riding when he became unwell - I joined the ride.
The friendship and connection I have experienced through riding has given me the courage to try new things.
Having previously worked as an OT in mental health services and more recently been on the Mental Health Review Tribunal in Brisbane, I am excited to be able to contribute to the amazing work of Youth Focus.
Thinking of my nephews and the challenges life brings to all young people, to provide support and the opportunity to develop resilience through riding my bike is a gift. Thank you for supporting me in my Ride for Youth.
