In February 2016, the extreme sports world was devastated by the loss of one of its most decorated and talented individuals. I found the news of his death extremely hard to come to terms with!
Although I (Paul Bevan) did not know Dave Mirra on a personal level, I had spent years of my life following his career, achievements and personal goals. In my eyes Dave was, and always will be my role model, the reason I push myself to excel in everything I pursue... He was my absolute Hero!
I, as with many others, was unaware of the battles that Dave was facing. Naive to the struggle of so many people facing similar personal issues, I endeavour to raise awareness of these conditions so that others do not have to suffer feelings of shame and stigma.
Bevolution Music with 'Papyrus UK' hosted 'the first of many' Pop Punk music event in our hometown of Southampton on Saturday, 19th March 2016 at 'The Talking Heads', 16-22 The Polygon and managed to raise donations for our cause. We continue to leave this page active for those who would like to donate to this fantastic charity.... As a proud supporter of PAPYRUS we have the shared vision that many young suicides are preventable.
Your kind donations can really make a difference as 80p in every £1 directly goes towards keeping HOPELineUK running, outreach community work and campaigning, - In November 2016 alone, PAPYRUS received 4520 calls, texts and emails to HOPELineUK.
Please help us to support this fantastic charity who work endlessly 'as do many others' to prevent the loss of our heroes, friends and loved ones.
Thank You x
