Meet some of our fundraisers

"We all know someone who has (or is still) dealing with mental health challenges.  It can happen to anyone for any reason, or for no reason at all."

"This cause is very close to our hearts. Most families are affected by mental illness at some point, and recently it was ours."

Dyson Family, ran the Auckland Marathon 2017.

"We have to break the stigma around mental health and talk about it. Let each-other know that it is okay to not be ok."

Nicole, running the Rotorua Marathon 2018.

"Mental health, and the effects it has on people, isn't something many people talk about and it's that silence that can really be deadly."
