MOTORCYCLE riders from the region who want to join the charity Black Dog Ride in Dubbo on March 23 can register online.
The ride in and around Dubbo will be one of 30 across Australia that day.
The annual Black Dog Ride has raised $1 million for mental health services since it began in 2009. Last year nearly 5000 Black Dog Riders hit the highways in support of the cause. The ride will raise vital funds for Lifeline Australia in support of their suicide prevention services. A report in the Daily Liberal on February 10 said the money would go to the Black Dog Institute but that was incorrect.
Ride organisers encourage motorcycle enthusiasts to join in to show their support and raise awareness for depression and suicide prevention.
The ride’s founder Steve Andrews, who lost his mother to suicide, said: “Depression is an illness, not a weakness and effective treatments are available. If we talk about depression and work together, we can make a difference.”
