Ride for Rami
A group of coaches, club officials along with Rami’s close family are organising a 45 mile charity bike ride from Exeter Saracen’s Rugby Club to Dunkery Beacon on Sunday 13th September 2020, to shine a light and raise awareness of suicide, mental health and well-being.
Rami was a player, an under 13’s coach and a much loved member at Exeter Saracen’s who was sadly lost to suicide. Pete’s Dragons have supported Rami’s family, friends and young players beyond words and it is hoped that by organising this challenging bike ride, that the cyclists can give back whilst raising awareness of suicide and men’s mental health.
Suicide is the biggest cause of death amongst middle aged men. There is not usually one overriding reason but a build up of intense emotional strain and emotional exhaustion and overwhelm. Their distress may mean that they are too scared to ask for help.
Apart from supporting people who are bereaved by suicide, Pete’s Dragons work hard to raise awareness that it is important and safe to talk about suicide within communities, including sports clubs. The links between good physical health and mental health are well recognised and the club aims to do more by connecting coaches and club officials together socially. This will assist in raising, much needed funds for the charity and also to raise awareness about starting conversations around suicide.
