Unity Cycle Ride 4 Jerome

A tall, handsome, bright and talented young man, with his life before him, Jerome Williams committed suicide on 1st August  2019. He was 24. He was in the prime of his life with everything to live for.

He left behind a dad who will struggle with picking up the fragments of hearing the devastating news for the rest of his life A young sister, Mehalah, 15 years old, many extended family members and close friends who have fond memories of him. His absence has left a searing hole which will impact their lives for many years to come.

As a consequence of Jerome's passing, his family and friends have decided to launch a fundraising event in honor of Jerome, to raise awareness of the impact of suicide and of which the proceeds will go towards the Charity Young minds www.youngminds.org.uk  , who are engaged in the prevention and support of young people or anyone associated with mental health and suicide. If our cycle ride can help at least one young person we are on our way to making a difference.

The first step of his remembrance will be a cycle ride from Chelmsford to Amsterdam in Holland on April 24th, 2020. the goal is to raise £10,000. We are appealing to everyone including family friends  and businesses, that are impacted or associated with suicide to sponsor this ride either through riding the event or sponsoring someone who is.

The duration of the ride is 3 days (2 days cycling).

Min sponsorship per individual  £1000 + if possible.  

*The maximum total cost per person to ride the event is £750.00 and 25% of this will go directly to the Young minds charity. Once the £750 goal has been reached per person, 100% of all further funds will go to Young Minds.
