Black Dog Ride - Around Australia 2019

By Andrew Pearson

In Australia, it's estimated that 45 per cent of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.

In any one year, around 1 million Australian adults have depression, and over 2 million have anxiety.

I have now lost 6 friends to the Black Dog. If what I can do saves even 1 life, then I feel I have made an impact.



On July 26th 2019, Black Dog Ride will be departing from Busselton WA, the original departure date and location in 2009.

Those who would love to join us but can't get the time off work or commit the funds are encouraged to join us on our State Rides, and Around Australia Riders will meet up with them during the lap of our nation.

The average daily distance is 500kms, with 5 rest days spread across the duration of the ride. Participants will be part of Black Dog Ride's community engagements with schools, community orgs, and local businesses.


Support our intrepid adventurers as they undertake a life changing journey to empower communities around Australia by shining a beacon of hope into the shadows to leash the black dog of depression.

All funds raised will be put into Black Dog Ride's Community Funding Pool to fund small grants across the nation for projects which lead to positive mental health outcomes in our communities.

As Black Dog Ride is a charity every donation over $2 is tax deductible, and funds raised will go into Black Dog Ride's community funding pool to fund mental health projects across the country.
