My Story

After decades of all-consuming struggle, us Sri Lankans are hopeful that this opportunity for over-all well-being is not wasted again. From indebted farmers to traumatized soldiers many thousands need psycho-social support systems which are severely lacking. I am glad to have found an organization like CCCline which helps those in the shadows. I hope to join the effort by biking around the country, raising awareness and much needed funds.

I have always loved to bike. As a youngin' I loved visiting my cousins in Anuradhapura because that meant long bike rides through the arid country to rewarding water tanks. When attending undergraduate studies in Massachusetts, I joined the mountain bikers and experienced the thrills thereof. Back in Sri Lanka for the last 3 years, I have wanted to experience the serene beauty of this land, and I can't think of a better way to do so than from a bike.

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

Apart from the main Bikeathon in Sri Lanka, there will also be a mini Bikeathon events in Melbourne and Brisbane on the 7th September.

The Melbourne ride will consist of a 10km loop in Jells Park and a 133.3km road ride through the Dandenong mountains, Pakenham and back to Jells Park. For more information on the rides and how you can register, visit www.1333bikeathon.org or call Jetha on +61438007930.
