Spotlight: Black Dog Ride
Communiteer is collaborating with Black Dog Ride to tackle mental health!
We’re really excited to have Black Dog Ride join our community! They are a For-Purpose organisation that raises money for mental health programs and foster mental health awareness around Australia. Their focus is on raising awareness of depression and suicide prevention.
There are two official Black Dog Rides each year:
- The 1 Dayer, a short one day ride in over three dozen regions of Australia which draws thousands of motorcycles riders together for one cause – riding to raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention
- A long distance ride, usually around 3,000kms or one weeks’ duration (not including trip home) which aims to engage regional communities to raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention
Joining us on a Black Dog Ride is an enjoyable and meaningful way to get involved with the Black Dog Ride community and assist with Black Dog Ride’s suicide prevention activities.
Black Dog Ride are creating impact through their contribution towards the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
Together with your help, we can help reduce the harm of mental illness and make a lasting impact on mental wellness.
