With his departed friend Chris and his junior high students top of mind, Tyler Weber pushed himself to a personal best bike ride of 225.8 kilometres in just over nine hours in a journey to raise awareness of suicide prevention.

The Grade 9 teacher at St. Mary’s Catholic High School in Sexsmith, Alta., eclipsed his previous peak distance of 175 kilometres April 20 to raise awareness and funds for the Resource Centre for Suicide Prevention in Grande Prairie, Alta.

Weber had hoped to raise $1,000 through this grassroots fundraiser, but ultimately shattered that target four-fold as $4,320 was accrued by the time the donation platform closed.
