Paihia to Russell 3.3 km Swim for suicide awareness

By Jon & Sammy horsfall

4years ago we sadly lost a son and a brother to suicide, we are this swim to commemorate Ben andΒ  because nearly 50% of New Zealanders will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime, and we don’t want them to face it on their own. 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 wellbeing. We want to raise $10,000Β  so please donate to us today! Every little bit counts! Thanks Jon and Sam

Thank you to my Supporters
