Taupo Marathon 2021

My Activity Tracking


My target 164 kms

I'm fundraising for mental health

Mental Health is a cause close to my heart. An area a lot of people struggle with, but find it hard to confront. The more support that’s available, the easier it becomes to confront and understand.

I took up running as one way of looking after my mental well-being, and through running for a cause I’m hoping to raise money and awareness for mental health. Many will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime, and a little help goes a long way.

My target amount is $654, which is the number of people died by suicide in New Zealand. Your donation will help the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand provide people with free information, resources and campaigns covering the A-Z of mental health and wellbeing topics. It will also help them advocate for helpful and hopeful policies and services for people living with mental illness.

So please show your support and donate to my page today. Every little bit counts!

Thank you in advance,

Running is great for mental health and has a lot of similarities. There are good days and bad days. Sometimes the good days last longer than the bad ones, and sometimes it's the other way around. Sometimes you feel like you're never going to get back out there, and sometimes it feels like nothing is gonna slow you down. 

Started the journey with a small knee injury, but I'm back at it and going strong.
