Dedicate your run to raising awareness for mental health in NZ!

Help make a difference to 1 in 5 Kiwis experiencing mental distress by raising money andawareness for mental health. The course follows the gorgeous harbour coast line starting at Frank Kitts Park, going round the beautiful bays, and finishing at Kilbirnie Park.

When you join the Mental Health Foundation team, you'll raise serious funds to support our work, but you'll also be strengthening your own wellbeing by being active and getting out in nature! So gather your work mates, friends, tamariki, or your whole whānau and lay down the challenge.

"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 the New York Marathon 2018

"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."

Logan, did Tough Mudder 2017.

The Mental Health Foundation is committed to seeing a 20% reduction in New Zealand’s suicide rate within the next 10 years.
