Why I’m Sweating with Pride

I’m taking on Sweat with Pride this June to raise money for our Rainbow communities! 💦🌈

Our schools, workplaces, and doctors’ offices are still not safe places for many Rainbow New Zealanders and it’s putting lives at risk.

More than half our rainbow whānau have experienced mental illness. One in five of our rainbow rangatahi (youth) have attempted suicide. And life changing STIs like syphilis, mpox and HIV are still far too common. Things need to change.

So, this June I’m fighting discrimination with perspiration, and I've committed to exercising for at least 21 minutes EVERY DAY to raise money to support Rainbow Kiwis.

This cause means a lot to me. I’d be SO GRATEFUL if you could chip in to help me reach my goal. Every dollar I raise will fund life-changing mental, physical and sexual health services for Rainbow New Zealanders.

Thank you sooooo much ❤️

My Updates

Ten days in!

Monday 10th Jun
Alright! ten days in, and a little ahead of a third of a way through each of my fundraising and activity goals- thank you to everybody for the donations and encouragement, it really means a lot.

One thing you'll see a lot of on my activity feed is walks- a lot of people don't know this, but I ended up with fairly debilitating agoraphobia during the lockdowns- we're talking not able to go to the letterbox without fear-sweat and shaking, not fun! This persisted afterwards for quite a while.

I thought I'd worked through it, but then realised that I'd just increased my 'safe' bubble to my office and part of the campus across the road. I've been making an effort to expand back out again- it's taken a few years to get to where I am, and I still have a way to go. Doing this challenge has been good for me. So thank you for the encouragement to go on silly little walks for my silly little mental health <3
