KWH Rides for Youth

Team Kitchen Warehouse gets ready to ride for youth!

One of Australia’s premier charity events, the Hawaiian Ride for Youth is held annually to raise funds for Youth Focus. Offering a range of free mental health services, Youth Focus supports young people and their families in overcoming the issues associated with youth suicide, depression and self-harm. Over 100 riders will embark on a gruelling journey of over 700kms from Albany to Perth stopping at high schools along the way to engage students in a conversation about positive mental health.

We are proud to announce that for the first time Kitchen Warehouse will support the ride as a Team Sponsor. Kitchen Warehouse director Chris Murphy has participated in the Hawaiian Ride for Youth for the past three years and is passionate about the cause and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The Hawaiian Ride for Youth will take place from the 24-28 March. The riders have set themselves a fundraising target of a massive 1.75 million. To help them reach their goal, make a donation now!
