Geoff's NSW Black Dog Ride Fundraising Page

By Geoff Bishop

<p>The <strong>Black Dog Ride</strong> began in 2009 as a ride to raise awareness of depression, evolving into a national charity involving thousands of Australians who have raised millions for mental health programs and fostered mental health awareness around the nation.  Join me on my mission to raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention.  More info:</p> <p>In August 2019, a group of around 45 volunteers and myself will be setting off on a 3,000 km journey on our motorbikes starting in Wagga Wagga and ending in Byron Bay via Broken Hill! Raising discussion about suicide prevention and breaking down the stigma surrounding Mental Health issues while raising funds for various mental health charities in the NSW outback and country areas.</p> <p>While riding around NSW we will be meeting up with the <strong>Black Dog Ride Around Australia Riders</strong> who are completing the big loop around Australia (16,000 kms) before they move on to the next State in their adventure to raise awareness of depression.</p> <p>I’m really hoping you will sponsor me on this very worthwhile cause. Please donate, no matter how big or small, your donation is so much  appreciated for this cause which affects us all.</p>

There r so many words from A Z that can apply to depression, anxiety.....mental health. I am sure everyone who knows you, would wholeheartedly think of a word beginning with A thru to Z, to describe your selflessness Geoff. Mental Health. Its so complicated. But the more it is de stigmatised by raising the issue and talking about it, the less stigmatised it will be. For it to be seen and accepted by general public as a disease and not hidden away, I have no doubts will make the biggest impacts and inroads to helping those affected with it.
