'Rise+Shine' Josiah Mika Foundation

Enable the 'Rise+Shine Josiah Mika Foundation' to empower our children to RISE above adversity, exuberant resilience, flourish and SHINE.

Auckland

The 'Rise+Shine Josiah Mika Foundation' was established in loving memory of Josiah (Sunrise 20/09/2010 - Sunset 16/05/2020), who died at 9 years from a rare neurological condition that effects completely healthy children. Josiah's parents Jerome and Julie Mika, along with his 3 brothers (JJ, Jovahn and Jaden), established the Rise+Shine Josiah Mika Foundation to honour his legacy and empower children & young people in Aotearoa to flourish & shine as Josiah did in his short life.

The overarching vision of the Foundation is to improve wellbeing equity for children and young people in Aotearoa, particularly in South Auckland and the Eastern Bay of Plenty (where the whānau have close connections). The Foundation recognises the vital role of sport, performing arts, recreational activities and fun-innovative-learning opportunities, and supports equitable access and inclusion.

The Foundation aims to be a catalyst to empower our children and young people to RISE above adversity, exuberant resilience, flourish and SHINE.
