Meet some of our fundraisers

Holly Auckland Marathon 2018

“This cause is one dear to my heart. Everyone knows someone impacted someway or another by mental illness and I, personally, have seen far too many people close to me affected by it.” 

Holly, Auckland Marathon 2018

"This is a cause extremely close to our hearts, and we believe deserves as much support, education and time we can all do our part in giving."

Liana and Nanda, Round the Bridges 2018.

"I would also like to raise more money for the MHF, a charity that does so much work with a part of our health that is often overlooked and affects all of us.

Laurence, Auckland Marathon 2018.

"Poor mental health effects so many people in my community I felt very strongly that I wanted to be part of the solution and by fundraising I feel that the donations I can receive will go towards helping many amazing people."

Michele, Inca Trail 2019.
