Ride Against Depression
Blair Benefield is skating the whole of New Zealand on his custom made long board to raise funds, maintain awareness and help New Zealand combat Mental Health Issues and Depression.
When we heard about Blair's quest, we thought of ways we could contribute. The obvious way was teaming up for Custom Converse, but we wanted to do more. So, we've teamed up Blair for a charity collaboration aptly named- Get RAD.
The Get RAD Range has rad gear and something for everyone. We want to help Blair get a movement going with branding that will last long into the future and be a recognisable symbol of hope in dark times. Two words, so simple, yet delve deep to the heart of Blair's mission and a cause close to his and our hearts... a beacon of light in the dark.
Every purchase from the Get Rad Range, a portion of the proceeds (20%*) will be donated to Blair's three charities: Youth-line No Duff Charitable Trust, and Good Neighbour Trust. Each of these charities provides support to those in need struggling with depression and mental illness.
Please help us and Blair raise awareness by sporting your Get Rad Gear and supporting three great causes at the same time. Blair hopes to raise awareness and support for these causes throughout his journey, with an end goal of $150,000.
If you're a business and would like to support Blair and Get RAD, we have sponsorship spots available for purchase, to help Blair reach his goal of $150,000. For more information, please click here.
