Riders fight the black dog
Ten riders took off from Elders in Narrogin last week to make their way to Busselton for the annual Black Dog Ride.
The ride is from Busselton to Hobart, covering 4000km over 10 days.
The Narrogin riders left on Friday morning to head to Busselton where the rode began on Saturday.
Today, they will be riding 532km from Port Augusta to Mildura.
The Black Dog Ride was established in 2009 by founder Steve Andrews after his best friend’s wife died after a silent struggle with depression. Mr Andrews felt the need to raise community awareness of depression and so he embarked on a month-long solo ride around Australia where he raised $34,000 for Suicide Call Back Service.
Since its establishment almost 10 years ago there have been more than 140 rides supporting depression and suicide prevention.
