When I think of what motivates me to participate in the Ride for Youth, it really just distills down to one thought and that is no young person should have to suffer through mental illness and anxiety without professional help and they should not think that the only solution to their problems is to take their own life, it is as simple as that.
So by participating in the ride I am helping raise funds which allow Youth Focus to get counselors in front of vulnerable young people.
I found on the ride that it is also much more that, the collegiate spirit generated by riding with like minded people and the experience of ride week, including the numerous school visits provides so many memories and highlights.
So I thank you all for your donations large and small, they are all much appreciated and a good acknowledgment that you understand the problems and are willing to help.
