This is my first year on the Ride for Youth. I am already really enjoying the training, camaraderie, and I am very proud to be supporting Youth Focus.

With two teenage sons, learning that suicide is the biggest preventable cause of youth death is a huge motivator. But Youth Focus has waiting lists and needs our funding to support its counsellors. Knowing that our fundraising directly provides counselling support and reduces waiting lists is fantastic.

I've paid $1600 for the privilege of getting up at 4.30am 3 mornings a week for the next six months of training and to fund the week-long, 700km trek from Albany to Perth. That means everything we raise goes directly to providing frontline services and education programs not only to reduce symptoms associated with suicide, depression, anxiety and self-harm, but also to build long-term mental well-being and help young people reach their full potential.

Thank you for your support.
