Damien Rider is currently riding across the US and speaking at schools and support and veteran groups, LGBTQ youth and men's suicide prevention groups about sexual child abuse and PTSD. He will be in Tulsa on 17 May when he will be showing his National Geographic film, Rise Above, to the skate kids he met along the way and who feature in the documentary.
Damien is an endurance athlete and motivational speaker. He has two National Geographic documentaries and is the creator of One Breath Meditation. As the voice for Australia for sexual child abuse and nominated for Australian of the Year, Damien talks about overcoming life's challenges and uses extreme sport to overcome trauma. He has paddled by hand 500 miles in open ocean, skateboarded from Chicago to Santa Monica along Route 66 and ran marathons carrying a 35lbs mattress. His free talks across America sit along side sporting events he's taking part in, including the RedBull 400 in Copper Peak, Michigan.
His 60 day tour across America culminates in Los Angeles from 2 June for the free One Breath Meditation sessions. Everyone will be invited with a heavy focus on Youth and Males.
