The Cycle for Suicide 2.0 is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions on cycling (see our Coronavirus Update). Our helpline is available every day from 2pm to 4pm on 07934 187147. You are not alone.
Cycle for Suicide 2.0 is in aid of those who have taken their own lives, those who suffer from mental issues and those who are bereaved by suicide. Terry Geddis aims to cycle around Ireland lighting up towns on his journey to raise fund for the Zachary Geddis Break the Silence Trust. ZGBTST is established as a permanent legacy of Zachary, who at only 20 years of age, took his own life after a long battle with his mental health.
The ZGTST offers the local community counselling, workshops and drop-in sessions. 100% of the funds raised in aid of ZGBTST are directed back into the community in the form of support.
Back in 2018, Terry cycled 1,400 miles in 12 days in a coast to coast cycle of Ireland in aid of ZGBTST. Over £1,000 was raised for the trust through our GoFundMe page alone. Terry was inspired through his own mental health journey to start the #keepthelightonNI campaign in 2019. In this Cycle for Suicide, Terry cycled 1,200 miles in 11 days. He passed 120 towns in Northern Ireland and gave a member of each community a candle for them to light in memory of those who have fallen victim to suicide. Terry received a nomination for Northern Ireland Superstar Fundraiser of the Year.
This year in 2020 Terry aims to raise £10,000 to support the community by cycling around Ireland during June and July.
