"Mental health is a major issue in New Zealand, with 1 in 5 kiwi's suffering. I'm inspired by the work of The Mental Health Foundation of NZ and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in the Auckland Half Marathon 2018."
"We will be running Round The Bridges to raise money for the New Zealand Mental Health Foundation, but more importantly our mission through this journey is to raise awareness surrounding mental health, and mental health issues."
"What I have been through inspired me to run Auckland Marathon this year for the Mental Health Foundation of NZ. While I was running this year that’s what keep me going. A cause so close to my heart and one I am proud to support."
"Hope you will help and support me with a great cause for many New Zealanders. There is always someone you know who is battling a very private fight but I want you to know you are not alone and you really matter"
