Waihi Beach Trig Challenge 2019

By Sara And Emma

The Waihi Beach Trig Challenge 2019

The Waihi Beach Trig Challenge is back for 2019 and this year raising funds and awareness for the Mental Health Foundation of NZ

We, Sara and Emma, founded the Trig Challenge in 2018 to create a community event to raise awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis, after learning of local child’s battle with the disability.  We set our community a challenge to walk Waihi Beach’s beautiful Trig track 48 times, the equivalent distance it would take to scale Mount Everest

After the success of last year's challenge, we're back for more, this year  supporting the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand in its work to help New Zealanders build positive mental health and wellbeing

Nearly 50% of New Zealanders will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime, yet there’s an unfortunate stigma around mental health that prevents people from speaking out. We find the Trig Challenge especially fitting this year, as exercising is proven to release endorphins which are effective in the fight against depression and anxiety. It’s also a great way for the community to come together and build relationships and friendships; another important ingredient for mental wellbeing.

Your registration fee, or voluntary donation will go directly to the Mental Health Foundation of NZ to provide individuals, workplaces, schools and communities with the tools they need to support positive mental health in NZ

Your support means so much to us.

Sara and Emma.
