My Story

I have created this page because I want to make a difference.

I believe that mental disorders can be prevented by promoting mental health, and that a healthy lifestyle can change our DNA substantially to improve our overall health and psychophysical well-being.

I was told that two people who are dear to me, all of a sudden, had mental disorders and still cannot accept such an absurdity. To me, healthy lifestyle means ensuring that each of us has a good diet, gets enough sleep and does regular physical exercise; these three are the main 'ingredients' to a happy and healthy life, filled with happy, healthy and meaningful interpersonal relationships. Adequate support of the family and friends who are close to them could have changed the destiny of those two people, and so can yours with respect to your loved ones!

I am inspired by the great work of Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand and want to support them by fundraising whilst competing in the 60m-, 100m- and 200m- races every week until the end of March 2017. I sprint because I believe that running can promote mental health and help prevent mental disorders. I had countless physical injuries but those have not stopped me from doing what I like and what I consider to be part of a healthy lifestyle.

Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your family and friends.

Moreover, have a healthy run with your family and friends!

I sprint because I care. And you?

Thank you in advance for your generosity; it means a lot!
