Working towards a suicide free Australia

In 2014 Kayak4Youth will again endeavour to raise funds and awareness for the prevention of suicide in Australia with a focus on youth suicide.

The aim for 2014 is to undertake a kayak adventure in a remote Northern Australian location. Unlike Kayak4Youth 2013, this year Kayak4Youth will involve a large group of kayaks and participants all paddling towards the one objective - a suicide free Australia.


Funds raised in 2014 will be donated to Lifeline. We anticipate Kayak4Youth 2014 will be held in September. Watch this website and Like us on Facebook to stay up to date. Donations can be made via this website anytime before the end of September.

While Kayak4Youth 2014 is in the early stages of planning, we are fortunate to have already secured some amazingly generous corporate support. Let the adventure begin!

Kayak4Youth was founded and commenced in 2013 while Andy was living in the Independent State of Samoa. With a historically high suicide rate in Samoa, the aim of Kayak4Youth 2013 was to become the first person to circumnavigate Samoa by kayak.

The journey took 13 days, covered over 400 kilometers and raised WST $60,000 for the Samoa Lifeline. The journey and issue of youth suicide is the subject of a television documentary currently in production.
