In memory of my father Stanley Sprager 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. My family experienced the horrible consequences of depression when my father took his own life when I was a little girl. There isn't a day that goes by that we are not affected by this tragedy and I will continue to do all I can to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma around mental health in the hope of saving someone else's father, mother, son, daughter, friend, one life at a time.

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.

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.
