A small yet mighty group of us are putting pedal to chain and cycling over 60 miles or 100km from London to Worthing with the aim of raising a cumulative total of £2,500 to support Olly's Future's life saving work in suicide awareness and prevention. All money raised will pay for UCL students to attend free suicide prevention training. £30 will fund a university student to attend our suicide prevention training 'Talking About Suicide: Ten Tools' and £300 pays for 10 university students to attend for free.
The route includes several locations significant to Olly's life. We begin in London, where Olly spent time living and studying to achieve a 1st class degree at UCL. We then head south through the suburbs, into Surrey and Sussex, passing Christ's Hospital school where Olly spent seven happy years as a pupil. Our final destination is Worthing Pier, where we will park our bikes alongside the glass window recently installed and designed in celebration of Olly's life.
We lost Olly to suicide on 14th February 2017, just two days before his 23rd birthday. Our lives will never be the same without him. Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK, with 75% of all suicides being carried out by men. With the terrible loss of our son, our brother, our nephew and our friend, this devastating statistic becomes all too real. As suicide rates for men continue to climb, Olly's Future puts every effort into preventing further tragedy.
Please donate generously to support this crucial life-saving work!
