It's an honour to be invited onto the R4Y 2022 Heritage Peloton. It's my 14th year being involved in the Hawaiian Ride for Youth, my 11th year as a Rider, one year as a Reserve, and two years as a Support Person.

We have three healthy, happy, professionally employed now adult children. I've always appreciated that kids growing up can have a rough time, often through no fault of their own, and can greatly benefit from service like Youth Focus. I'm very proud to be involved in raising money for Youth Focus because it is such a well-run charity and does such great work.

We riders all pay $1,600 to cover our expenses on the Ride itself, so anything that you contribute to me goes directly to Youth Focus to help young people at risk of suicide, depression and self-harm. Thank you.
