Please help me cycle my way to support kids in need!
After my last successful and much shorter cycling challenges, I now find myself signed up for the Chain Reaction 3 day Cycling Challenge on the Gold Coast in November! It will be an inspiring 3 days to see 50 ladies cycling their hearts out for Traction and White Ribbon Australia.
Traction: Traction's mission is to empower young people to build their own positive futures.. Many young people are facing challenges beyond their ability to cope and are disengaged from education, training and employment. These disengaged young people may be at risk of social or financial disadvantage across their lifespan. Traction gives young people tools to mange life's challenges and helps them engage with learning, build resilience and skills for work and life.
White Ribbon Australia: Breaking the silence is a professional learning initiative for educators and other school staff members. It provides knowledge, tools and strategies to develop and implement a whole-of-school plan to foster respectful relationships, gender equality and prevent violence, harassment and abuse.
It aims to:
- undermine attitudes, gender stereotypes and disrespect that are the drivers of men's violence and abuse against women and children;
- help students understand consent and the qualities of healthy relationships; create generational change through a primary prevention approach; and
- broaden understanding of sexism and advance gender equality.
