Ben Roache

This March, I’m challenging myself to swim to save lives in memory of my cousins lost to suicide.

Did you know that suicide is the leading cause of death for young people in Australia? That means that each year, more young people die by suicide than in car accidents or from cancer.

By sponsoring my participation in Laps for Life, you'll be helping ReachOut achieve its mission of ensuring that all young people have the support they need to be happy and well.

Let's do it!

I think we can raise some serious money for youth suicide prevention! I was originally aiming for A$400, but we are already pretty close to that original target. So, with over a month before Laps For Life 2021 even starts, I've set myself a challenge to raise $5000 by the end of March. Thank you to everyone who has already donated!
