Featured Fundraiser: Fifty the Movie SCREENING


Sunday March 4th, 8PM - Academy Theatre Auckland

Joanne Paton and Gerry Lynch aim to raise $20,000 for the Mental Health Foundation in support of their New York Marathon event. They were inspired by friend Mal Law who has been a major fundraiser for the Mental Health Foundation and whose film showcases his highs and lows while attempting 50 off-road marathons in 50 consecutive days across some of the most beautiful mountains in New Zealand.


Meet some of our fundraisers

“Mental health is something that affects almost everyone and is a topic which needs to be addressed in New Zealand.”

Zaimon, ran the Queenstown Marathon.

"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.

"I’ve accepted the challenge; I’m fundraising to show my support for anyone struggling with mental health issues, their families and friends." 

Stephanie, climbed Mt Kilimanjaro.

"This cause is one dear to my heart. Everyone knows someone affected someway or another by mental illness or suicide."

Peter, did the Snap Fitness 8 Week Challenge.

“1 in 5 of us w
ill experience mental illness in our life, yet not many of us talk about it when we are not doing well. I am running in support of the Mental Health Foundation and the work they do to increase awareness, end discrimination, and advocate on behalf of mental health service users.”

Mark, running the Auckland Marathon 2017 for the MHF.

Our fundraisers are vital to our work

 Money raised supports the Mental Health Foundation to increase awareness about mental health and mental illness. Donations enable us to provide free information, resources and programmes on mental health and suicide prevention. They also help fund our advocacy work for better access to mental health services, a national commitment to upholding dignity and human rights, and equal participation in communities and in employment.
