Taking part in the 1333Bikeathon will be my biggest challenge of 2016. Although riding is a new hobby for me, keeping active has always been important and travelling the world has always been one of my biggest passions. Being able to combine both of these, as well as having the opportunity to give back and support the local culture and community is a dream come true.
I look forward to the new adventure that we will be a part of over in stunning Sri Lanka. I am doing this ride in hope that I can raise money and awareness to help those who are suffering from the demons that are a mental illness. Like many others, I have experienced first-hand the effects that mental illnesses can have on those that you love, and the frustrations that come with a limited access to support. Sri Lanka is currently rated the 4th highest in the world when it comes to suicide with over 15 people dying by suicide every day.
I am excited to be involved with the CCC Foundation and to have the opportunity to raise much needed funds and awareness for suicide prevention in Sri Lanka. Please help and support me during this journey to not only overcome a huge personal challenge for myself, but to help make a difference to the lives of people in Sri Lanka.
Please sponsor me so we can reach our fundraising target to keep the phone lines open at CCCline1333 for those going through crisis, or simply want to talk to someone about their problems. THANK YOU!
