Reid Keady O’Leary

By Eden Willow O’Leary

Look who's doing a fundraiser!

Hi everyone

Reids birthday is the 29th of March and this year since we can’t physically celebrate with him, I’m going to celebrate for him. What I will be doing is fundraising for mental health awareness, so people can get the help that they need. 

Firstly, a little bit about the what:
I'll be doing 5km run on Reids Birthday to help support the work of the Mental Health Foundation.
This will be a challenge for me - but every day can be a challenge for people who may not have the resources they need to maintain a positive well-being and function well in their everyday lives.

Now the important stuff, the why:
Nearly 50% of New Zealanders will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime, and I don’t want them to face it on their own. Your donation will help the Mental Health Foundation of Aotearoa provide people, workplaces, schools and communities with the tools they need to build positive mental health and well-being.

I want to raise $1,000 so please donate today!

Every little bit counts!

Thank you in advance,

Eden Willow

Last year me and a mate created a school business that raised money for mental health awareness! We found this page and thought it was best to donate our money to you! We personally didn’t know Reid but plenty of the mates did! Love to support locally and hope this helps towards people speaking up! Hawkes bay bloody aye!
