Why I’m Sweating with Pride

Hello ❤️🧡💛💚🩵💜🩷

Thank you for visiting my page! 

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. 

More than half our rainbow whānau have experienced mental illness. One in five of our rainbow rangatahi (youth) have attempted suicide. Things need to change.

So, this June I’m fighting discrimination with perspiration, and I've committed to exercising for at least 30 minutes EVERY DAY to raise money to support our Rainbow Kiwis.

This cause means a lot to me with many of my friends, family and colleagues identifying within the rainbow community. So I’d be SO GRATEFUL if you could chip in to help me reach my goal.

Every dollar I raise will help. Do you have $5 handy? Or maybe just time to share my link?
