Wellington Round the Bays 2018

Get involved / Events to take part in / Wellington Round the Bays 2018

Run the Wellington Round the Bays on Sunday, 18 February 2018 and help raise awareness and funds for the Mental Health Foundation.

Nearly half of us will experience a mental illness in our lifetime, so chances are there’s someone around you right now who isn’t coping or is feeling alone. The Mental Health Foundation provides information to individuals, families, friends and whānau about where to turn for help, and the ways we can look after ourselves and others.

Set up your fundraising page for the MHF. Raise $200 for the MHF in the lead up to the event, and receive a MHF running shirt to wear on the day! Fundraise online, through bake sales, Trade Me auctions, raffles and BBQs, or a combination of activities. However you go about fundraising, we have all the tools to help you succeed. If your company would like to enter a team and fundraise as a group, please get in touch.

Event tickets are not on sale yet, but you can find out more about the event at the Cigna Round the Bays website. For more information, email fundraising@mentalhealth.org.nz or call 09 623 4810.

"I feel that people who [experience] mental illness can sometimes be judged by others when what they really need is support. If you see somebody with a broken leg you can relate to how they must be feeling and the pain they must have gone through but you are not able to see into somebody's brain and relate to the way mental illness makes them feel. I want to raise funds to support people who face mental illness and for those who we have lost because of it." – Jaime, fundraising for the MHF.
