Brief overview of the event or initiative:

Online running event on Strava to raise awareness for Mental Health.

What were the aims of the event or initiative?

We wanted to raise awareness of Mental health and support the Mental Health Foundation NZ. For every 2 Km ran on strata with ENSOC we donated $1. In total ENSOC donated $1600. Davis Ogilvie also contributed a large sum while getting their staff involved in the challenge to bring the total donation to $1900.

How did you make it happen?

We used Strava to track the runs. We also started off the challenge with the committee collectively running for 24 hours and promoting it on social media.

How did you make it better?

This year we were not in lockdown so we could do more group runs to increase the kilometres run and encourage others to do the same.

How did you show your commitment to sustainability?

The event was completely online and promoted exercise which in itself promotes sustainability.
