Spreading awareness about youth and male suicide in NZ, and combating it through exercise and discussion


New Zealand youth suicide rates are the highest in the developed world. Read that again.

New Zealand tamariki and youth are our future, and we're not investing. They need more ears listening, hearts giving and leaders enduring.

So were here to generate funds for youth to access recreational sports programmes and education on healthy lifestyles and leadership through Ignite Sports Trust. Also, a safe environment for troubled youth to discuss their burdens, come up with healthy coping strategies and in general not feel like there's no one they can reach out to, through Youthline NZ

Through healthy lifestyle, education and compassion, we can change this countries grim statistics, if only a little to begin with, and help break through the stigma by spreading awareness and talking to each other
