Hawaiian Ride for Youth sponsorship

This March, Shadforth sponsored our sixth annual team in the Hawaiian Ride for Youth in Western Australia. The ride raises funds and awareness for Youth Focus to assist in the prevention of youth suicide, depression and self-harm.

The Shadforth team, which included staff members Nera Jareb, Terry Dillon and Simon Growden, joined 180 riders for a four and a half day ride over almost 700kms from Albany to Perth.

Along the way, the riders visited around 20 regional  high schools and spoke to approximately 2,000 students about how to deal with depression, anxiety and bullying. Some riders also shared their personal stories and experiences — a very moving experience for the youths, school staff and riders.

This year’s ride raised over $2.4 million for Youth Focus and the Shadforth team is proud to have personally raised $38,420.
