My Activity Tracking


I'm fundraising for mental health

This is my first time running a half marathon and I wanted to run for mental health. My goal is to show support and raise awareness (and some money) for mental health. 

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,

Sarah 😊

Why mental health?

Monday 19th Jul
We recently lost a person in our community to suicide and I wanted to do something practical to show support for grieving family and friends. Suicide is such a big issue in NZ and no one should lose a loved one like that. I know I can't change what's happened but I hope that by running and fundraising I can help raise awareness for others that might be struggling. 

Thank you to my supporters
