In Memory of Gillian, I ride again!

In Memory of Gillian, I ride again!

Personal message

Hello!
I want to thank everyone for all of the love and support in the last year. It has been a challenging and emotional one to say the least! So I am trying to ways to have some positive come from the pain and grief. I keep being reminded that you can never get over a loss, but instead you need to learn to integrate it into your life. So I have decided to once again ride the 94.7 Momentum Cycle Challenge in Johannesburg this coming November. This year, we are forming a team to support the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG). I am personally riding in memory of my friend Gillian. So any and all support you can give will be so appreciated!!

SADAG just celebrated their 20th anniversary and is the largest mental health organization in the country. They provide support through 15 helplines (which receive over 400 calls a day) answered by 100 volunteer counselors, hundreds of school programs, distribution of speaking books, and over 250 support groups and counseling centers. 1 in 4 South Africans struggle with mental health problems, and there are an average of 23 suicides and over 230 attempts per day. SADAG is actively helping those that struggle withdepression, bipolar, trauma, panic and anxiety, substance abuse, and suicidal thoughts. We are honoured to help such a worthy cause!
