"I'm running to raise money and awareness for The Mental Health Foundation of NZ - it's part of my goal to draw attention to the mental health issues my peers and I face as musicians and as part of the stressful and unforgiving entertainment industry."

"Poor mental health effects so many people in my community I felt very strongly that I wanted to be part of the solution and by fundraising I feel that the donations I can receive will go towards helping many amazing people."

"I am aware how many people are touched by mental health in New Zealand. We see this not only in the media, but in our community. I hope that fundraising can help in some way and that my taking part has helped raise awareness."
