Black Dog Ride to the top end 2018 - Stephen Walsh – Aka “DEADLY”
Black Dog Ride began in 2009 as one man's ride to raise awareness of depression, developing into national suicide prevention charity involving thousands of Australian motorcycle riders who've raised over $2,200,000 for mental health services, fostering mental health awareness around the country. Your contribution to Black Dog Ride is sincerely appreciated.
Black Dog Ride' iconic annual long distance ride is an Australia-wide suicide prevention project raising awareness of depression and suicide prevention in local communities across the country. In August 2018, hundreds of Black Dog Riders are headed to the Top End, saddling up to harness the black dog of depression, start a national conversation about suicide prevention, and support local community mental health projects. Give your encouragement for Black Dog Riders and support suicide prevention by donating today!
I have been involved in doing the black dog since 2012 and have enjoyed being a part of fund raising and contributing to the need of people being affected by mental health. I as an indigenous person find this type of raising awareness not only effects Indigenous people but all people from all walks of life, they can be as young as toddlers to old age and it is just as much effecting people working in all different industries. The black dog ride campaign is to support the mental health kits for community programs to work with. I am going to do this for the 6th year of being involved and would like to educate more communities as we ride through many of the regions to talk and on the issues and how many people can be more involved in the campaign.
