The 2020 ride will be my 6th Hawaiian Ride For Youth. There are plenty of reasons that I keep coming back. In no particular order they are because the ride does so much to raise awareness of anxiety, depression and suicide amongst the young people in our community and because it raises much needed funds for Youth Focus to provide services to those young people who are in need of counselling and support. Finally, I come back because of the truly wonderful Ride For Youth community. The camaraderie generated amongst the riders and the support crew, who all volunteer their time for this great cause, is quite remarkable and it's a real honour and privilege to be riding with a group of great, like-minded people who are making a real difference to the lives, and futures, of our most important asset, our youth.
Of course I couldn't do the ride without the wonderful support of my wife and two beautiful boys who really get behind the ride and who give me the greatest welcome home when we roll into Kings Park on the last day.
I'm grateful also to my financial supporters, many of whom have been behind me since my first ride in 2014. I really appreciate the support - it means a lot - and if you can help out again for the 2020 ride I'd be most grateful.
