MAGNUS proud to sponsor Ride For Youth team

MAGNUS Corporate and Financial Communication is delighted to announce the inaugural sponsorship of Team MAGNUS, to participate in the 2015 Hawaiian Ride For Youth charity bike ride from Albany to Perth.

The sponsorship is the culmination of MAGNUS’ long association with Youth Focus, a not for profit organisation supporting vulnerable young people by offering a range of mental health services, and underpins MAGNUS’ commitment to actively contribute to the communities in which it operates.

The Ride for Youth aims to raise awareness of the issues concerning youth suicide, depression and self-harm and to raise funds for Youth Focus. In 2014 the Ride raised $1.95 million and in 2015 hopes to exceed $2 million.

The Ride is held annually in March across five days with riders covering more than 700kms on their way from Albany to Perth. On their journey riders will visit high schools to engage the students and raise awareness of the services provided by Youth Focus.

Team MAGNUS is taking the coastal route from Albany, stopping at towns including Walpole, Pemberton, Busselton and Mandurah, averaging a whopping 150km/day.

The Team is currently committed to a challenging training and fundraising schedule and feel deeply honoured to be involved with this highly successful and important event.
