Hi my name is Guy McCone and I am a 35 year old greenkeeper based in the Hawkes bay region of New Zealand.

From a young age I have suffered from the effects of depression and anxiety. This all came to ahead in 2004 when I blew to bits and to put it bluntly "shit the bed", I lost all of my confidence, shifted home to live with my parents and had to leave my job. Through hard work, the support of my awesome family and a great councilor I returned to normal life.

Then after shifting to the Hawkes Bay in 2011 my dear friend returned. I wasn't able to shake it on my own and after 2 years something had to be done! Eventually it was my inspirational mum Gill who took action and basically kicked my arse! I didn't want to do counselling again so I tried a new and slightly alternative therapy called the Lightning Process. My sister Anna had used this successfully to treat post concussion syndrome so I thought it was worth a crack. The Lightning Process, put very basically, is a way to re-train the brain and look at things.

After completing the training course in mid November 2014 I re-evaluated my goals. Two of them where to "complete a major multisport event each year" and "organize and complete a fundraising event for mental health". Then I got creative and combined the two and "TEAM RUBBER DUCK RACING" was born!

The idea is I complete running/multisport events throughout the year and you guys donate money for me completing them with the funds going to mental health initiatives throughout New Zealand. I want it to be an ongoing thing for the rest of my life so you can give a little or shit loads! You are also more than welcome to challenge me to do something in exchange for donations, anything considered!

Thank you so much for the donation!

Hopefully we will catch up when we are down in Hamner Springs at the end of July, probably at the boys rugby.

Take care,
