QGAir Ambulance Officer Crewman and United Voice member Allan Jefferson is on his bike for a good cause.
Allan is an accomplished endurance cyclist who will be competing in this year's Race Across America (RAAM) while raising money for Beyond Blue. As a first responder, Allan says he’s seen first-hand how the challenging environment emergency workers face can be an underlying cause of PTSD, depression, anxiety and suicide.
“So I’m asking for your help in raising funds to promote the awareness of the benefits of good mental health,” he says. “It’s important we all join together to help take care of our frontline emergency service workers.”
The RAAM is 30% longer than the Tour De France and attracts amateur and professional athletes alike from across the world.
