So I am doing the Ride for Youth again...why?
Well 2020 taught us all many things but one was about young people - maybe their resilience is not what we thought - as schools moved to remote learning, team sports were on hold, employment opportunities dried up young people felt the brunt of Covid 19 yet these impacts have a long way to play out...supporting young people to look after their mental health and wellbeing is integral to a thriving community and social structure.
However, while the training is tough for an old gal like me but the Ride For Youth gives me more than it demands - camaraderie, achievement, a sense of belonging and community, the opportunity to give back and make a commitment to what I believe is important.
It’s tough in these times where fundraising is tricky, and many charities ask a lot of the community. Yet we need to invest in the next generations to ensure the unintended consequences of Covid don’t linger too long. And I for one don’t want to look back and think I could have done more!
