The Mental Health Foundation are putting together a team of 15 running heros.  Will you join us?

This New York Marathon is notoriously hard to get entries to, but we have managed to score 15 places for Kiwis that are keen to do the event and raise money and awareness for our work. The package deal (including flights – and the other notoriously hard to get thing in NYC – accomodation) is being organised through Inspired Adventures

You will need to pay your costs, and there is a fundraising targets of $6,000 to meet, but we'll offer you a massive amount of support and guidance to help you smash your goals.

"When I speak about mental health at work, I get many people share with me their experience and most people will have been affected by it in some way."

Gerry, running New York Marathon 2018

"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."

Joanne, running New York Marathon 2018

"What would you march in the streets for? I would march for increased mental health education, funding tools for suicide prevention, and helping people live a life which is filled with courage, love and is true to their values."

Maysie, running New York Marathon 2018

"I was excited at the thought of the challenge, of an inspiration to help me get my life back on track, and above all the chance to raise money for the Mental Health Foundation"
