Simons Black Dog Ride

By Simon Manolaros

Hi friends, this is a subject that is very close to my heart. Most of us have either been touched by the Black Dog or have family and friends that have. I am doing the Black Dog ride 2017 around Tasmania with 230 other riders from the 27th of October until the 6th of November to raise money and raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention. Defence and Emergency Workers save and protect lives. But this demanding work means they may experience the trauma of mental illness at twice the rate of other Australians. At Black Dog Ride, we find that statistic unacceptable and we're doing something about it. In 2017 we're fundraising to provide these heroes with Mental Health First Aid training, so these heroes can identify and respond appropriately to a colleague in crisis, keeping them safe from harm. Black Dog Ride's goal is to raise $200,000 to fund 500 scholarships. Black Dog Ride to Tasmania 2017 is bringing hundreds of people together to ride to the Apple Isle, engaging hundreds of communities and thousands people to raise awareness of this cause. Please, dig deep and support this life saving initiative.
