Mt Everest Challange

By Eden McPhillips

The Mount Everest challange is walking up Mount Maunganui 38 times in 50 days to raise money for a cause but we are taking it to the next level and are gonna walk up it 38 times consecutively in 24 hours! This is going to be one of the hardest things we’ve ever done but it doesn’t come close to how hard it is living with a mental illness and feeling like a prisoner in your own body. We want to raise as much money as we can for the mental health foundation so that people who need that extra support can get it! Ditch one of your large almond milk, triple shot chia lates this week and put that money into a cause that’s going to help change and quite possibly save someone’s life.

We are doing this 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 $5000 so please donate to us today! Every little bit counts!

Thank you to my Supporters
