Why I’m Sweating with Pride

I’m taking on Sweat with Pride this June to raise money for our LQBTQIA+ and Takāpui communities! 💦🌈

Our schools, workplaces, and doctors’ offices are still not safe places for many Rainbow New Zealanders and it’s putting lives at risk. I believe in education through perspiration, so while I sweat this year you'll earn facts and information about our community. Knowledge is power!

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. This MUST 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. I'll be marching, dancing, and sweating up a storm!

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. Last year we raised $1250 so my goal is to raise the roof on that this year. Let's go!

All my love,
