Why I’m Sweating with Pride

I’m taking on Sweat with Pride this June to raise money for our Rainbow communities - particularly to end HIV in Aotearoa!

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 60 minutes *each and every day* to raise money to support Rainbow people across Aotearoa.

This cause means a lot to me. I’d be really really 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 so very much ❤️
