All funds raised will go to I am Hope, supporting their focus to help young Kiwis along their own mental health journey.
In 2021, my mother passed away after a long battle with bipolar disorder. Mum was 57 years young at the time, and being a proud Northlander her favourite beach was Matauri bay. November 12th 2022, I will be running 57 km from Matauri Bay to Paihia in the Bay of Islands with a goal to raise $20,000. Yikes its a long way!
Having a hands on experience with mental health growing up, is what has given me the motivation to help raise money for a cause who is promoting mental health journeys with education, and providing support frameworks that are available to use now! Not later. No better charity for this than I am Hope and the Key to Life Charitable Trust.
