"Razor" Ray Chamberlain Hitting The Road For A Good Cause

AFL umpire "Razor" Ray Chamberlain and Australian cycling legend Phil Anderson will be joined by 35 cyclists and volunteers as they tackle a massive bike ride from Ballarat to Melbourne, raising funds for mental health, loss and grief.

The 850 kilometre ride starts off in Ballarat and makes it's way along the Great Ocean Road, stopping off in Halls Gap, Port Fairy, Port Campbell, Wye River and Rye. The ride ends on Saturday 9th of February in Melbourne.

Money raised for the event primarily goes to GriefLine Community and Family Services, Australia's only dedicated free loss and grief national telephone counselling service.

Chamberlain has lofty goals for the ride.

“Our goal is to raise $100,000 to support mental health services for children suffering the effects of grief or loss."

His commitment to GriefLine and the bicycle ride has continued to grow over the years.

“In that time many people close to my brothers and I have suffered greatly with mental illness. Some have, with professional support, found their way out of the darkness and some have lost their battle with depression and sadly, their lives. All of these people have had a profound impact on both our understanding of mental health and wellness and our outlook on life in general,”

Four years ago, Chamberlain, along with his brother Peter and Brian, established the Chamberlain Foundation. It's aim is to support organisations providing services to people suffering with mental health issues and suicide.

Since it's inception, the Foundation has donated over $250,000 for suicide prevention and mental health (supporting programs identified by GriefLine, RUOK and the Chamberlain Foundation) in an attempt to further curb the instance of suicide and help support those finding themselves at such a point in their lives along with those closest to them.
