When the locals at Geraldton City Speedway heard about our vision to reach remote communities with depression and suicide prevention through community BBQ’s and events they responded with support. Sadly the association lost one of its young champions Ashley Page, to suicide just over a year ago. When they heard we were visiting Ashley’s home town of Meekatharra on the Crossing Australia tour, the club decided to pass the hat around and help our mission. Every day miracles seem to be happening. Including the provision of the 2009 Harley Davidson XR1200 that is being modified to endure the outback tracks across the great deserts of Australia. We are so grateful to everyone who has stepped up to support the cause. We will have more details of the bike and the mission next week!!! Two weeks to the day till we set of from Shark Bay, the western most point of Australia.

We will be holding a fundraising event in Geraldton on Sat 20th August. If you’d like to support financially go to: http://gofundme.com/crossingaustralia
