Help break the depression cycle

Help break the depression cycle Image

The Orygen Youth Health (OYH) organisation is encouraging Docklanders to Suit-Up and Ride on Friday, November 19, to raise money to combat depression.

The event will see teams race around Waterfront City and its piazza on RACV Melbourne Bike Share bikes. However, the catch is that all participants must wear a suit and tie or their usual office attire or uniform.

Teams can choose to enter the men’s women’s or the mixed category and each team’s time will be judged on when the last rider crosses the finish line.

Prizes will be awarded for the fastest teams in each category, the best-dressed team as well as the team that raises the most funds. There will also be spot prizes for spectators.

Each participant must bring their own helmet and bike shorts and appropriate footwear is encouraged.

Suit-Up and Ride aims to raise money for OYH’s Headsmart program, which is delivered to year 10 students via high profile sport people who have lived with depression.

The program is designed to increase young peoples’ knowledge of depression by helping them to recognise depression, support others, seek help and remove the stigma associated with depression.

To date, 2750 students have completed the program since its inception and Suit-Up and Ride aims to fund 1000 new OYH Headsmart programs annually via a program entitled “Headsmart 1000”.

To enter, each team must make a tax-deductible donation of $1000 to the Orygen Youth Health (OYH) Headsmart Program via the Suit-Up and Ride website: http://www.suitupandride.com.au.
