Running a marathon to raise funds for the NZ Neurological Foundation.

Main image


The most complex organ in our bodies is the brain, it controls our functions, shapes our reality and tells us when we love someone.

So it's a shame that research into neuroscience is underfunded in New Zealand.

Disorders such as dementia, stroke, Alzheimer's et. cetera can all be treated to some extent but research is needed here to save lives, if you know anyone with neurological illnesses or are keen to help out please donate to this page.

On the 18th of June I'll be attempting the marathon in Wellington to support the NZ Neurological Foundation.

Too many people in my life have been affected by brain disorders I feel it's time to support this cause somehow.

Every dollar here counts, I'm giving up double browns to support this, what can you give up to help out?

Anyone who donates $10 or more will have their name featured on my shirt during the marathon, giving you that public exposure you've always wanted

Thank you

I'll match whatever the donation amount is by the 17th of June.

My sister passed away from a brain haemorrhage at 13, while there is no certain treatment for this type of illness it's certain that research into the brain can save lives.

This money will go towards funding the top neuroscientists of NZ so that they can continue their research.
