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 Zumba teacher posted this today on Facebook 😂 So far I've done Zumba for 12 out of 16 days this month. My feet are feeling it... I've had to buy new shoes.

Thank goodness for Zumba

You have blown me away with your donations. I am exercising  daily and we still have the best part of the month to go, so I've increased my target accordingly! I feel so passionate about the cause, especially with what's happening in the world drifting down to affect our rainbow communities here in Aotearoa. THANK YOU. xx
