With the change that Covid-19 has brought to our lives, it's more important than ever to look after our wellbeing, and the wellbeing of our whānau and community. Being active, staying connected, keeping a routine, and setting ourselves challenges are all great ways to help us do that. By joining a ‘going the distance’ walking/running event, you are not only taking care of your own wellbeing, but also raising money to help support mental health for all New Zealanders.

Let's get started

We have three fun 'go the distance' walking/running events to choose from. Set your own distance and fundraising targets and earn achievement badges as you reach your goals. Ask your friends, whānau and work colleagues to support you on your journey and maybe even join you in a team effort. Stay connected with loved ones and let them know what you're doing to support mental health. We'll be here to support you every step of the way!

Where the money goes

Help the Mental Health Foundation continue supporting Kiwi households in this changing environment. We don’t know what the biggest needs will be in the coming months, but we do know the need for mental health support and information will grow. Your donations will ensure the Mental Health Foundation can provide resources, information and hope to families around the country.
