My Story

As a PhD student living in Sri Lanka and researching the experiences of migrant workers, I have had my fair share of exposure to the overwhelming personal and social hardships that many Sri Lankans endure in silence. CCCline lends a much-needed ear to individuals who may otherwise be stranded and unsupported while navigating problems that many would struggle to fathom.

As an avid cyclist, the bikeathon represents a unique opportunity for me to push myself beyond the fray of my Colombo commute and make the additional pedal strokes count for something bigger than the ride itself. The CCCline is a very real and needed resource for everyday Sri Lankans; I'll be toiling for 13 days in making my effort to promote it, you can make yours by making a donation - no matter how small - to aid this vital service.

Blob

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.

Sponsoring a rider, whether they are riding in Sri Lanka or Australia, will contribute towards making a difference to prevent suicides in Sri Lanka. Donations made in Australia and Sri Lanka are tax deductible.
