Kilimanjaro Adventure

By Laura Cooney

I'm fundraising for mental health and wellbeing

In September, my buddy Allanah and I are going to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. I'm asking people to sponsor my efforts, with all funds raised going to the mental health foundation. 

I'm doing this because 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 NZ provide individuals, workplaces, schools and communities with the tools they need to build positive mental health and wellbeing. I want to raise $3000, so please donate today! Every little bit counts!

Thank you to my Supporters
