11 views

Terry Geddis is once again getting on his bike to remember and raise money for those affected by suicide and mental health.

Terry, one of the founders of local charity ‘Zachary Geddis Break The Silence Trust’, lost his son whom the charity is name in honour to, back in 2017 to suicide.

Since then Terry has taken part every year in a mammoth cycling challenge in his sons memory.

Yasmin Geddis, co-founder of ZGBTST and Terrys daughter, spoke of her fathers upcoming challenge:

“So Dad starting off on this Monday coming (June 29th) cycling around ireland in memory of those who have taken their own lives, bereaved by suicide and suffering with mental health issues.

“He will be lighting his path along the way as part of our ongoing #keepthelightoncampaign and we are hoping to raise £5000 for our FOC counselling services and art therapy groups in our workshop in Coleraine.”

Terry’s challenge will run from June 29th to July 11th.
