I am very lucky to have stumbled across a cause that I so inherently believe in. Not only does the Ride For Youth support our community, but it enhances my life as an individual as well. Finding a group, a project and a cause that aligns so closely with my own values has been one of my greatest blessings.
I know that when it comes to mental illness, professional treatment and support is not just a benefit, but a necessity. With every fibre of my being, I believe we need to make mental health services readily available to young people and stop the increasing rates of suicide.
The past couple of years have been a bit weird for everyone. Having a stable and consistent support network through the Ride has been more valuable than ever. That's really what we are striving for - establishing a stable and consistent support network for everyone, because that's what everyone deserves. Especially our youth.
2022 will be my sixth Hawaiian Ride For Youth and very likely my victory lap (for now)!
