Currently there are around 11 people on average who die by suicide everyday in Sri Lanka. For every suicide, there are many others who contemplate suicide and fail in their attempts. 1333Bikeathon "Out of the Shadows" is a bike ride for 1333km around Sri Lanka over 13 days to raise awareness and funds towards CCCline1333, a free Telephone Counselling service operated by CCC Foundation in Sri Lanka. The ultimate aim of CCCline1333 is to prevent suicides in Sri Lanka by encouraging people to call its toll free and confidential 1333 phone number.
