"I’ve accepted the challenge; I’m fundraising to show my support for anyone struggling with mental health issues... I’m raising money to help provide resources and support necessary to help those Kiwis who feel overwhelmed, who feel like they can’t cope and feel alone. No one should ever feel like they’re alone in this so it’s important that we start these conversations and keep sharing stories so that we can save more lives." – Stephanie, fundraising for the MHF.
