George Weston Foods - One Foot Forward

My Activity Tracking


I'm fundraising for the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand

In October I'll be taking part in "One Foot Forward" with my team from George Weston Foods. The individual challenge is to walk 40, 60, 100 or 150km over the month and raise funds for the Mental Health Foundation.

I'm helping raise money and awareness for mental health because nearly 50% of New Zealanders will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime. One in five New Zealanders experience a mental illness and/or addiction each year and it’s important to remember that with the right tautoko/support many people can and do recover. Wellbeing isn’t just for people who have not experienced mental illness – it’s for everyone.  

We should all be able to play a part in shaping the mental health system we want to see. Your donation supports The Mental Health Foundations policy and advocacy work, enabling them to keep you informed and share opportunities to have your say. The Mental Health Foundation advocates on behalf of people with experience of mental health issues for better access to services, a national commitment to upholding dignity and human rights, and equal participation in communities and in employment.

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

Thank you in advance,
