EVENT: High Five-0 Challenge
EVENT DATE: 31/01/2015

Which is the bigger challenge:
1. to do what's never been done before - climb 50 peaks and run 50 backcountry off-road marathons in just 50 days; or
2. raise at least $250,000 for the Mental Health Foundation of NZ?

Make no mistake, both goals are unprecedented & humungous. Neither can be done without the support of a vast number of big-hearted people. I'm hoping you're one of those!

Using this site you can help me achieve both goals - your donation, however modest will take me a step closer to the fundraising target. But just as importantly, your accompanying message of support will give me the motivation to keep on going through the inevitable tough times that lie ahead.

I have a huge empathy with the Cause that I'm running myself ragged for & firmly believe that through this adventure we can make a genuine difference to the mental wellbeing, and hence the happiness and prosperity, of New Zealanders.

If you'd like to lend a hand, then select the 'Make a donation' button below. It's simple, fast and totally secure.

If you live in New Zealand your donation is tax deductible and a receipt will be issued.

So please sponsor me now!

Many thanks for your support
