Participating in NZ Armed Forces & Emergency Services ICN Bodybuilding & Fitness 2021 Competition
My names Ashley, and I am part of the New Zealand Army. I am competing in the Services Body Building competition in October, and I am fundraising for the Te Kiwi Māia Charity.
Mental health, physical fitness and general well being is super important, and the services hold a special place in my heart. I would love nothing more than to raise funds to put towards this fantastic mission to help our fellow service personnel.
Te Kiwi Māia Mission
Providing rehabilitation, recovery and respite to our people, who – as a result of their role in safeguarding and caring for New Zealanders – have physical or psychological injuries. We enable our people and their families to continue healthy, positive lives.
This will be achieved through the provision of facilities, equipment, services or assistance for the rehabilitation, recovery and care of such individuals, as well as their immediate families, who are in need.
Our aim is to establish a homestead and working farm designed and equipped to foster physical, psychological and emotional rehabilitation and recovery; somewhere for those who have committed to our country, and who have been injured through their work, to recuperate and refresh. This will be achieved via the provision of a supportive and inclusive environment, professional assistance, access to a variety of services, and opportunities to participate in activities that promote mental wellness; such as pottery, cooking or yoga classes, building tuition, sports and fitness, or assisting on the farm.
Ultimately Te Kiwi Māia’s goal is to support and assist those whose role has been to safeguard and care for all New Zealanders, so they can continue healthy, positive lives.
Te Kiwi Māia’s Charitable Trust number is CC56958
