It is estimated that one in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide (World Health Organisation 2017). Australia is an amazing country, but we are not immune from this reality.

I am riding from Cairns to Cape York through some of Australia’s most remote country to raise awareness for Mental Health and to engage with Communities along the way. Many of our riders have personal stories that motivate them to be involved in this important activity. We need to destigmatise Mental Health, raise awareness and talk about the challenges many Australians face.

I'm not a bike rider, but I'm committing to riding 646km over a week on some very rough road/trails and in tough humid weather. So I'll be buying a decent bike, and maybe? probably? wearing some lycra along the way..., Training for 6 months and then smashing the ride on the 1st - 9th of June.

So would like to ask for two things,

1) A donation to help fund the cause, every little bit helps me reach $3500
2) A rally call at your place of work or to family/friends on my behalf.

It's not a small target so going to really need some help, even if it's just $5 from friends of friends!

Thanks in advance for your support!
