I'm a very passionate mountain biker and road rider. I find riding is a great stress release and helps me clear my head after a busy a day. Riding just makes me happy - I call it my 'meditation' on wheels. But, for hundreds of people in Sri Lanka, their state of mind cannot be changed just by a simple bike ride. These people suffer deeply fighting their inner demons. As many as 11 Sri Lankans commit suicide every day because they think their problems are too big.
I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of the CCC Foundation and want to support them by raising money and taking part in the 1333 Bikeathon in 2018. This will bring awareness to the existence of the 1333 counselling hotline. For many people this hotline will be their first step to finding that inner peace. If I could assist just one person to reach out and phone the 1333 hotline, to talk about their problems, then riding 1333 kilometres around Sri Lanka would have been well worth the effort.
So please help me to help hundreds of others realise that help is only a phone call away by sponsoring me to ride 1333km around Sri Lanka in 13 days starting 29 August 2018. The more people that know about 1333 Bikeathon and the CCC Foundation, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Your donation will bring me closer to my target of helping as many people as I can to find their own 'Meditation on wheels'. Thank You.
