Running the Old Ghost for the people of the West Coast

By Pete Barton

Fundraising platform now live!!!

Posted by Pete, Monday 18th Dec

Kia ora!

On 24 February 2018 I will be running the Old Ghost Ultra for the community of the West Coast to raise funds and awareness of positive mental health and wellbeing.

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 West Coast individuals, workplaces, schools and communities with the tools they need to build positive mental health and wellbeing.

I would love to raise $2,500, so please donate today! 

Please visit to track my progress towards my goal of completing my first 85km ultra marathon.

Nga mihi nui.


Thank you to my Supporters
