Hello to all,
The actual ride is so close it is now 'real' and nerves are setting in. In the riding world I have achieved much more then I ever expected and still have until the end of March 19 to learn even more (and get better at those hills). This has been one of the biggest challenges I have ever set myself. It is one of those classic 'if I had known what I had got into I am not sure I would have signed up', but now that I have been training and met so many wonderful people that have helped me and have passion for every rider and 'the ride', I am so happy I did.
The actual event requires individuals to ride approx. 700km from Albany to Perth over 4.5 days at the end of March 2019. We stop at schools and riders talk to the children as a whole and individually and let them know there are people out there they can talk to if they want to.
Obviously my goal is to make the ride but more importantly to raise funds for Youth Focus . The money raised helps this fantastic organisation continue to offer free (yes free) support and assistance for young people experiencing mental health issues in WA.
As riders, all costs involved are covered personally so every cent donated goes to Youth Focus.
If you are able to assist with a donation - thank you. If not, the fact that you are reading this and are now aware of the existence of Youth Focus is enough.
Tania (and a huge thank you to those who have been so generous with their donations)
