In March 2021, I did my first Hawaiian Ride For Youth. From day one of training through to the final ceremony it was an amazing and fulfilling experience. So much so that I am back for more. What inspired me most to do my second ride was a comment from my wife Linda (a GP and very focused on youth mental health). She said that the money we'd raised last year wasn't enough to cover the demand for mental health services for our youth and much more is, and will be, needed.
To recap - “Ride for Youth” is responsible for a significant portion of the annual funding required for Youth Focus which enables them continue to do an amazing job with the young members of our community who are faced with mental struggles.
Many thanks to my team sponsors - Euroz Hartley - who made amazing contributions allowing us to ride. Thanks also to our Team Captain Shane Lehmann, David Smyth, Paul Thompson and Campbell Baird. Not to mention the coaches, support staff and the other 150+ riders.
I thank you for supporting this great cause - your generous donation will make a real difference to the life of a vulnerable young person.
