My target 21 kms

I'm fundraising for mental health

Hey Whanau Joe & I have decided we're going to take part in the 21km Half Marathon in Taupo 31st July. Our reason for this is to help in whatever way possible to raise Awareness of Mental Health. We all know someone who has been there or still needs help so what I'm asking is Whanau please donate. 

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, and I don’t want them to face it on their own.

Your donation will help the Mental Health Foundation 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,

Ria & Joe
