Some reasons why I don lycra and get up at 4.30 in the morning far too often:
1. Spending time with teenagers day-to-day and witnessing the pressures they are under I see first-hand the need for support for our youth in keeping them mentally healthy.
2. I have experienced losing more than one person to mental health issues and want to do what I can to reduce the amount of people that can say the same.
3. This is an important cause for my family, with my stepdad as a HRFY rider and my mum as support crew, and as far as I see it, this event is as much about growing a community and awareness as it is about raising necessary funds.
If you're looking to donate to a fast rider you must be lost - search for Phiery to donate to a gun that can actually get up a hill - but if you would like to donate to a Hawaiian Ride For Youth freshman with good intentions that is working on keeping up with the pack, I would be more than grateful for your contribution to this great cause.
