I am a passionate supporter of the Youth Focus Charity and the work they do to deliver frontline counselling services, education programs and engage with communities to educate and build awareness about youth mental health not only to reduce symptoms associated with suicide, depression, anxiety and self-harm, but also to build long-term mental wellbeing and help young people reach their full potential.
In March 2021, I will joining The Hawaiian Ride for Youth to cycle circa. 700kms from Albany to Perth to raise funds and awareness for Youth Focus. While cycling through towns in WA’s Mid West, we will be visiting high schools to engage with students on issues of youth suicide, depression, anxiety and self-harm.
During previous HR4Y rides I witnessed first hand the amazing impact of the Youth Focus counsellors and the Hawaiian Ride for Youth riders who engaged with primarily Year 9 & Year 10 students at high schools across rural WA to raise the awareness, reduce the stigma and confirm the support available to young people who may need help or counselling.
Thus, I am hoping you will support me and sponsor me for this years Hawaiian Ride For Youth and donate to the Youth Focus Charity. All donations, large or small will be very much appreciated.
Thank You So Much,
