Hello, Im really looking forward to be a part of the 2019 Hawaiian Ride For Youth which will be my inaugural ride.
It has been an event I have wanted to be part of since hearing of the important work Youth Focus does around mental health and well being for our youth from friends who have previously completed the ride .
The Youth Focus message is one that really resonates with myself, having had a younger brother who suffered from depression and mental illness in his teens and right through his adult life.
Being a father of three children with two of them now teenagers, I am very aware of the challenges they may face growing up in an increasingly digital age and the pressures that brings. Its great to know my children or their friends could call upon Youth Focus should they need non-family assitance and guidance.
Really looking forward to meeting new friends and enjoying the camaraderie that only long days in the saddle out on the bike can provide.
This year Im riding the Wheatbelt route and cant wait!
