BOC RUN
1  year  Mo Bro

$50

Target: $11,100
raised $25,324 since 2021
My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Mental health and suicide prevention

Look, we all know that too many men in NZ are suffering from the black dog and in the worst case taking their own lives. It’s an ongoing problem and us kiwi blokes have always had the “she’ll be right, let’s get on the piss” sort of attitude. This is a short term fix but doesn’t actually solve the problems around these issues. There’s ways out there to help and there’s nothing gutless about asking for help at all. It’s ok to talk, ok to ask for help, ok to share your feelings! I myself have been someone that hasn’t properly dealt with mental health issues so this here is my way of reaching out and ultimately helping others in a similar boat! I’m going to run 111km from the Cheviot Trust Hotel to The Carlton Hotel in Christchurch on Tuesday 30th November, in the hopes of donating some cash towards helping foundations who help blokes in need mentally! Oh, I’ll also grow my mo back that I shaved off at the start of the month! Please help this great cause… because it’s going to bloody hurt!

Hey Ben, just heard your interview on RNZ. Well done on sharing about your challenges and the fundraising run. Thinking about your objective to do a miler, if you don’t already have a training programme you might want to have a chat with Kerry & Ali at SQUADRUN. They’ve got me through a number of ultras.
