Don't have time to donate right now?
Myself (Kieran Russell) and Tom Smith are going to be riding from Pembrokshire, to South Stack Lighthouse on Holyhead, on the way we are going to be riding at trail centers. We are doing this on mountain bikes, as we would frequently go mountain biking together.
Me, Tom, Callum and the boys were always messing about, whether it be mountain biking, jumping off bridges or messing about on trampolines, a day with Cal and the boys would never be a normal boring day, someone would hurt themselves, do something mad, and Cal would definitely be eating haribos, that is something that never changed. We rode our bikes most often, which is why we want to ride the length of Wales to help remember what an incredible friend Callum was, but also prevent tragic events such as this taking place again.
Callum had Aspergers, this mean't that he couldn't process life like other people, he would have his own way of dealing with things, one of the side affects of this, was he had no fear, he was a great skier, and an incredible bike rider, because he had no limits. The unfortunate side to this, was Callum couldn't process his emotions to help deal with them, he wouldn't let anyone know what he was really feeling. and tragically this led to him taking his own life in January 2018.
If only there was a way to help people with the same problem as Cal, if only there was someone they could speak to and let his emotions out. maybe things would be different.
If the money we raise could help just one person in crisis. then we have done our job.
The money we raise for the Callum Wylie Foundation will go towards helping young people like Callum that are struggling with everyday life, and I can't think of a better cause than saving a life.
