“We are asking people to support what we do as all net proceeds from the evening will go directly to Youth Focus, so in return we enjoy putting on something that they may not be used to,” he said.

“We will ride in March from Albany to Perth and cover a demanding 700km over four-and-a-half days with stops at schools along the way to talk to students about improving mental health as well as raising awareness of the life-changing work Youth Focus does in metro and regional WA.”

Now in its 15th year, the Ride for Youth is one of Australia’s premier charity events, which has raised $15 million since its inception.

Tickets are $150 each and available by emailing or calling Renay on 9444 8711.
