2020 is shaping up as a big year
- Turning 50
- Celebrating 26 years of marriage
- Saddling up for my second Ride for Youth.
I'm excited to be getting back on the bike as part of Team Citadel-MAGNUS. But I'm even more excited to be doing the ride with my son Joel (20), a first-time rider. A massive challenge but we are both up for it.
Joel and I both struggle with mental health issues so we will form a formidable team as Youth Focus advocates, raising awareness of youth mental health issues and suicide.
We've paid $1600 each for the privilege of getting up 3 mornings a week for 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.
