Run for Wellbeing North Canterbury

I'm running a half-marathon to raise funds for Wellbeing, an organisation that helps families in the North Canterbury region.


OK so maybe it was turning 35 or maybe it was a ill-advised promise after a few beers, but on Saturday 2 May I am running my first half-marathon. When I started, I guess I was doing it for myself – but then I realised this is also a chance to raise some funds for a charity.

Wellbeing North Canterbury is a community organisation that provides a number of services for families in North Canterbury, such as support for young parents, social work, youth and drug counselling, a food bank, and many more. Check out more at

Go on, give a little!
