National charity PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide has places on three Nightrider™ 100km events this year. They include London (4/5th June) and for the first time Bristol (25/26th June) and Liverpool (16/17th July). Will you get on your bike to help a young suicidal person out of the dark?
Suicide is the main cause of death in young people under 35, both male and female. PAPYRUS exists to build suicide-safer communities for young people through its national helpline services, young people’s community projects, training and campaigns. To do this the charity relies on fundraising.
These charity cycle rides with a difference take place through the night while these cities sleep, on routes past famous landmarks. They are not intended as a race, but a challenge you take at your own pace, joining thousands of cyclists raising over £1 million in one night for their chosen charities. You will be fully supported, with regular stops and including breakfast and medal at the finish.
“Young suicide is a national scandal,” said Ged Flynn, PAPYRUS chief executive. “Society needs to recognise this fact and not be scared to talk about it. By undertaking a Nightrider™ for PAPYRUS you will be helping to raise awareness as well as valuable funds. You could save a young life. How good would that be?”
PAPYRUS has several places on the each of the Bristol, Liverpool and London 100km Nightrider™ events. 80p in every £1 you raise will go directly towards saving young lives. £20 pays for one 20 minute call to help a young person in distress, £500 would enable 30 people to identify a young person at risk of suicide.
Will you ride through the night to save a young life? The registration fee for each is just £39. For more information please call Ottilie Scanlon 01925 572 444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
