Toby Chappell, is the founder of the charity Skate For Hope. After skateboarding saved him from suicide, he believes that skateboarding can also save the lives of others. So while skateboarding from Cape Reinga to Bluff from November 2015 to January 2016 he will be visiting schools, churches, skate parks and youth centers to tell his story and encourage others to stand their ground and take action against mental health issues. He is an incredible young man, who is having amazing things happen to him after deciding to put as much effort into living instead of into dying.
