On 18 November 2013, our world fell apart when our beloved 17 year old daughter Emily lost her battle with depression and ended her life. We were left to figure out how to live without her and survive our terrible loss.
We decided that we needed to pick ourselves up off our knees and honour her memory by helping other adolescents who struggle with mental unwellness. We held the first annual Emily's Memorial Motorcycle Ride on 4 June 2016, with all proceeds going to CASA Foundation and CASA to support children's mental health.
2019 brought not only the 4th Emily's Memorial Motorcycle Ride on June 1st 2019, but also the first annual Emily's Memorial Fun Horse Show for Mental Health on July 20th!! It was a great day of horse jumping and we raised over $10,000 for CASA House! See the applicable page for more information.
We reached out to CTV's W5 and they covered Emily's and our tragic story.
