We are hiking peaks across New Zealand to raise money for mental health
Kia ora, I am Alice Guerin and my partner is Dan O'Neill.
We are on a mission to climb as many peaks as possible across Aotearoa throughout the summer of 23/24.
A little bit about what we want to achieve and why. We want to show everyday people that getting outdoors can not only improve your physical health but immensely support your mental health.
I lost my dad to suicide when I was 10 and have made it my life mission to inspire others to look after their mental health. Dan and I are extremely passionate about the idea that getting outside, exercising and learning a new appreciation for the world around us has an amazing impact on mental health and reaching the top of a mountain builds so much self belief and sense of achievement that can flow into our everyday lives.
We are so excited to be raising money for the incredible charity Voices of Hope, raising awareness around mental health through incredible video campaigns and speaking in schools around New Zealand.
