I'm doing this because nearly 50% of New Zealanders will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime.
I'm doing this because suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year olds.
I'm doing this to prove to myself that I can achieve anything I put my mind too.
Mental Health disorders is something that has affected me, my family and my friends. So, I have joined a crew who have all pledged to take on various challenges which will require them to push themselves beyond their own expectations. For me, this is taking a step away from my usual gym junkie routine to train for a Marathon.
Over the next few months I will be training with the support of my PT to bring both my physical and mental fitness up to scratch. I aim to participate in a 5km, 10km and Half Marathon in the coming months before the final challenge in November where I intend on completing the Queenstown International Marathon.
Running has never been my strongest discipline, preferring to hit the squat rack, run around a netball court or jump on a bike, so to be able to say I have run 42.2km would be an uplifting and humbling experience.
Your donation will help the Mental Health Foundation of NZ provide individuals, workplaces, schools and communities with the tools they need to build positive mental health and well-being.
My aim is to raise $2500, so please donate to me today!
Every little bit counts!
Thank you to my Supporters
