I have a few not-for-profit organisations that I’m incredibly passionate about. Below are some details about a few charity events I have been involved in.
KEY TO LIFE CHARITABLE TRUST
The Key to Life Charitable Trust is an amazing charity that travels around New Zealand talking to communities and schools about suicide prevention. Their aim is to forever change the way New Zealanders feel, think, talk, act and behave in relation to suicide and mental health. In 2013, I ran the Cadbury Dunedin Half Marathon to raise awareness and funds for Key to Life. Last year my partner, James, and I took part in a 90 Day Challenge to raise $2,000 for Key to Life. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we managed to raise $2,149.61 in total. Check out the video below to learn a bit more about why we support Key to Life.
CHATBUS – ZOMBIE RUN
ChatBus is a Dunedin-based charity that provides free mobile counselling to children under 14. I was lucky enough to be part of a wicked team of people who took part in ChatBus’ Zombie Apocalypse run in Dunedin this year. It was a great way to raise money, and a truly incredible (but somewhat terrifying!) event to be part of.
PRESBYTERIAN SUPPORT OTAGO
Anyone who knows me well knows that I love to bake. Once a year I try to spend a day or two whipping up treats to donate to the PS Otago food bank. This organisation does a truly incredible job helping those in need in our community. I encourage you all to donate to the food bank as they are always in need of extra supplies. You can find out more about how to contribute on their website.
