Sweat for mental health on Sunday 20th October

Join our team to raise funds and awareness for positive mental health and wellbeing

You will be raising funds to help provide up-to-date mental health and wellbeing information to health professionals, schools, workplaces, friends and whānau who support their loved ones through tough times. Whether you dedicate your run to a loved one, are getting active for your own mental health, or wanting to start conversations about wellbeing in your community - we'll be there with you every step of the way!

Join our team as an official Mental Health Foundation Charity Hero by pledging to raise a minimum of $1,000. 

As a Charity Hero, you'll get:

  • FREE entry in your chosen distance
  • FREE transport to start line
  • A purple ‘sweating for mental health’ running shirt
  • Help with fundraising ideas and resources
  • Team meet-ups
  • Training tips
  • Side-line cheering
  • Finish line refreshments at our marquee

There are limited Charity Hero places so register by filling in the form below.

If raising $1000 seems like a stretch, you can still join our team by setting up a fundraising page with your own goal and purchasing your own entry. We'll get in touch with fundraising support and if you raise $200, you'll score yourself a free purple 'I'm sweating for mental health' running shirt.
