"I know I'm not the only one, there are thousands and thousands of New Zealanders who suffer with mental health problems, so when I saw the opportunity to run the New York marathon 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 of NZ." - Claire. Running the New York Marathon for the MHF.
“Mental health is something that affects almost everyone and is a topic which needs to be addressed in New Zealand. By running with the Mental Health Foundation I hope to spread awareness and understanding and let people know that there is always someone to talk to.” - Zaimon. Running the Queenstown Marathon for the MHF.
"A large number of us have either experienced mental illness first hand or been witness to someone else's struggle. As I attempt to run 12 km to improve my own health, I've decided to raise some moolah for The Mental Health Foundation of NZ so that one day, everyone in NZ can get access to the help they need when they need it." - Sarah. Running the Auckland Marathon for the MHF.
"Mental health impacts so many people in so many ways, each different, each unique. I run to de-stress - I also run to prove that you can do anything you want to when you put your mind to it. When running marathons, the race for me begins at the 30km mark - that's when the mental toughness kicks in. That's when I prove to myself just exactly what as humans we can achieve when we focus our minds on our goals." - Mark. Running the Auckland Marathon for the MHF
