    Managing Director Goldfields Money Limited

I didn't ride for a long time and was encouraged by my mate Russell Gibbs [Chief Executive of Hawaiian and Chairman of the West Coast Eagles] to do this charity ride in Perth to help raise money for Youth Focus' Hawaiian Ride for Youth. This event is held annually over 4½ days, and we ride around 700 kilometers in teams, within a peloton. It is grueling grind to ride this distance. This is my second full ride and I will be riding from Albany to Perth via the wheatbelt route.

I love the idea of riding for a cause. It motivates me, which is why I love doing the Ride for Youth. Raising money and awareness for such a valuable cause and helping to educate our our kids about mental health and trying to save from self harm and suicide.

This year I have the pleasure of riding with the Finsure team and my son Jeremy is also riding with us. Finsure and Goldfields Money Limited are proud sponsors of Youth Focus.

Please support us by donating to Youth Focus.
