Riding 4 Life
Stacks of Snacks and MyLollies are partnering together with Lifeline to raise money and awareness for the critical role Lifeline play in preventing suicide. Our new event is called "Riding 4 Life". We are very excited to potentially partner with you, to support Lifeline in their campaign for suicide prevention. We will be riding our pushbikes 1,000km in a relay team of 4 from Canberra to Melbourne, with the lofty goal of completing the ride, non stop, in under 40 hours. We will be on the go around the clock, just like Lifeline with their support network, from 8am Friday the 4th of October, until hopefully just before midnight on Saturday the 5th of October.
This will be the first ever Riding 4 Life event but we are hoping it will be the first of many. As it is such a novel event we are aiming to gain significant media coverage. As you can imagine we need a creative route to get to 1,000km so we will be touring the major rural centres throughout Victoria and southern NSW. Our route takes us to the entire Lifeline Victorian regional offices in Albury, Bendigo and Ballarat. We also pass through, Wagga Wagga, Cobram, Yarrawonga and Echuca and finish at the Lifeline Melbourne office.
Lifeline provides 24 hour access to suicide prevention and crisis support services through one national number - 13 11 14. Trained telephone crisis supporters answer over 500,000 calls each year from Australians needing crisis support. Sadly, suicide remains the leading cause of death for Men, under the age of 44 and Women, under the age of 34 in Australia (ABS 2010). Lifeline's vision is for an, 'Australia free of suicide'. We are hoping to raise $25,000+ to help Lifeline in their extremely important work. If you would like to make a sponsorship pledge to help us reach our goal, please click on the link below:
