Helping our youth keep their heads above water

Amberley, Canterbury

We are extremely excited to announce an event coming February 24th, 2024,

In partnership with I Am Hope, we plan to swim in the Amberley pool for 24 hours to raise money and awareness for this amazing cause!

Why you ask?

Its more than just a daring feat of aquatic endurance, it is about our shared concern for the mental well-being of the youth in our community and throughout New Zealand.

As volunteer firefighters for Fire and Emergency New Zealand, we find ourselves responding frequently to Purple calls. These are call outs where immediate medical response is required. All too often these call outs are preventable, if people are able to access the right support when they need it the most.

I Am Hope does this by providing free counselling for individuals under 25. With Mike King, they also tour and speak at schools, working to normalise the mental health conversation and drive positive societal attitudinal change.

Please get in behind us and show your support by donating today
