Tasmania Here I Come

By eden@zoominwitheden.com

Two Years ago I went on a three week ride to Ayers Rock with some good mates.... and it was the start of something really huge for me....

It was a first big adventure with the Black Dog community (and certaintly not my last)..... it was amazing and the best thing about it as a group we helped to educate people about Depression and Suicide and also raise loads of money.

It wasn't just a motorcycle trip with friends it was with a group of people that truly care about other people and will do anything to help them move forward with their lives. For me this is what life is about, doing what you love to help others.

We all know someone who is suffering and the Black Dog community helps to give support and also raise money for these people.

I don't usually do that much fundraising but please if you can assist in anyway it would be truly amazing (even $5 will help).

I roll out on Monday the 30th of October ..... on this adventure headed to Tasmania..... I will be updating loads of images and videos on FB and will be sharing my journey with you.

Get ready for the ride. And thanks so much for your support it means the world to me.

 

The Black Dog Ride began in 2009 as one man's ride to raise awareness of depression. It has since developed into a national suicide prevention charity involving thousands of Australians. The Ride was the first, and has since become the largest, motorcycle event in the country- successfully connecting with a large and devoted motorcycle community. Since its inception, the charity has raised over $2,200,000 for much needed mental health services as well as fostering mental health awareness around the country. The charity attracts a large number of motorcycle riders, ranging from those who have suffered personally with depression, to others that ride along in support.

There are also many motorcyclists who join for the adventure. Whatever the reason, those that participate in the event walk away with a sense of pride and achievement. Riders also report a better understanding of depression, and a lesser sense of stigma concerning mental illness. The national publicity raised thus far from The Black Dog Ride is a testament to the professionalism of the organisation and the significance of its mission. It has gained traction in both mainstream and community print media, radio, social and digital media.

The organisation has also attracted high-profile and influential Australians including legendary performer Angry Anderson who has been a Patron of the Ride since 2009. Australia's number 1 stunt rider Dave McKenna also joined The Black Dog Ride as an Ambassador in 2015 and television journalist Simon Bouda (from Channel 9) have been extremely supportive both nationally and internationally. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for helping raise vital awareness of depression and suicide prevention with your generous contribution.
