Black Dog 1 Day Ride - Australia

#1

Post by old man emu » Mon Mar 14, 2016 7:44 am

The Black Dog is a nickname for the very common mental illness otherwise known as Depression. Depression destroys a person's life and in many cases is the cause of a person ending their life by their own hand.

In an effort to provide help and support for those who suffer from this devastating condition (and they include our returned service men and women) a number of volunteer-based organisations have come into existence over the past few years. These organisations often can only finance their important work through public donations. One support organisation in Australia is the Black Dog Ride ( http://www.blackdogride.com.au ), which has arranged for the running of a social Bike Ride in a number of cities and towns across Australia.

From a registration fee of about $30.00 proceeds will be donated to a mental health support organisation and through its continued work, maybe a life or two might be spared.

So all you Aussie bike riders and bikies, jump onto the 'Net and find out where your nearest ride is being held. Get out and do your bit by registering and riding next Sunday 20th March 2016.

If the weather turns bad and you don't feel like going out, you can make a donation on line.

Look out for the Purple People Eater WLA at Panthers, Penrith NSW.
