Having heard about the “1333Bikeathon Out of the shadows” from my neighbour and good friend Michael Winter who completed the ride in 2017 it gave me the motivation to participate in this year’s ride to support this very worthy cause. I was stunned and saddened by high statistics of suicide in Sri Lanka (on average 11 suicides each day). Like many people globally I have experienced first-hand the effects that mental illness can have on those that we love and not being able to support them.
As a person who thrives on a challenge, enjoys the outdoors and cycling I will need your assistance in sponsoring me on the 1333Bikeathon for my cycling journey around Sri Lanka to ultimately fund suicide prevention.
It is an absolute privilege to be part of this amazing charity foundation, it is a fantastic opportunity to meet some amazing people and see the beauty of Sri Lanka.
Please sponsor me so we can reach our fundraising target to keep the phone lines open at CCCline, a free and confidential telephone counselling service, for those going through crisis, or simply want to talk to someone about their problems. THANK YOU!
