Awareness Event Prevention

Hello and welcome to my journey,

On 3rd of December, 2017 I will be heading to Wanaka and hopefully by the time I come back to Auckland I would've managed to step on the summit of Mt Aspiring, New Zealand's 3rd highest mountain.

3,033 meters, over 8 days, with up to 20 hour climbs through snow and wind starting from as early as 3am. All with no previous mountaineering experience.

A year ago my best friend lost her brother to suicide. Another close friend lost her father. And very recently our family member suffered the same fate.

I experienced how hard and unexpected it was for all families. My heart goes out to everyone who has lost a family member, a friend or is suffering from depression.

I would like to invite you to help others, we can help save lives. $25 will support one person in crisis and $160 will provide an hour of helpline support.

If you are not able to donate but would love to help Lifeline, you can also become a fundraiser under Chasing Highs Challenge. Your challenge can be anything: running, walking, climbing, cycling, swimming, dancing ........ Anything that keeps you busy and happy and helps you stay mentally in a good place :)

Did you know that…

26 out of 100 students are being bullied in New Zealand?

Every 5th person you may walk past today will come across depression in their lives?

Every 2 days a loved one is being lost to suicide in 3 New Zealand families?

Did you know that....

Lifeline is only a phone call away 24/7 to anyone that needs support?

Every day Lifeline gets more and more people that are reaching out for help. They are a non profit organisation and every dollar donated will be well spent to help our fellow Kiwis.

Thank you!

With love,

Kat xx
