Brett Competes To Make Bullying History

Brett Murray is an ambassador for anti bullying, author of a book, Make Bullying History and a triathlete. He’s on a mission to help kids deal with bullying at schools and is garnering a lot of attention for his efforts. It turns out that Brett is also a friend of Trent Fitzgibbons of JetBlack Products in Australia and to support Brett in his conquest Trent offered a set of TOKEN wheels so he can ride on toward his goals. Brett wrote a letter to his supporters and it was kindly passed to us. We thought you’d like to read about Brett’s amazing efforts to fight against something that many of us have experienced at some point in our lives.

Letter From Brent

Dear Sponsors,

This has been an amazing year.

With still a few weeks left of school I’ve still got seminars to deliver to schools in Sydney next week, then a tour of broken Hill the following week. That will see the end of 2013 schools seminars.

This year, as you all know, was the launch of my Triathlon career as the Anti-Bully triathlete. Thank you so much to everyone of you for your support with this project.

Not only am i fitter than ever before, but I have completed an Olympic distance Elite Energy triathlon in Port Stephens, Followed by the Ironman in Cairns, then last weekend I completed the Forster Half Challenge.

In all of these events, there has been extreme support for the fact that I’m raising awareness of bullying, and in fact I’m the only triathlete in the world that is racing specifically for this cause. I certainly could not do this without the support of all of you.

For this I am sincerely grateful.

Statistics were released earlier this year stating that in 2012, 2500 people in our Nation committed suicide, and that in 80% of the cases Bullying was the major contributing factor.

Of these deaths 450 were under the age of 18, and for every youth that committed suicide, 9 others attempted it.

This is the reason why next year, with the change of the industrial relations laws, I will begin delivering workplace anti-bully training, I will continue to deliver seminars to students, parents and teachers, and I will compete in more Triathlons to spread the message that we must bring an end to Bullying.

With you help, we can make a difference.

Thank you all so much.

I look forward to working with you all more in the years to come.

Warmest regards,

Brett Murray
