The 654 challenge has been brought about to raise awareness around the rates of suicide in NZ in the past year.
654 people suicided in NZ last year. We in the Waikato have the second highest rates of any area in New Zealand.
All money raised will go towards bringing suicide awareness and intervention training to the community.
The challenge is going to be made up of 10 stations where you workout for 654 seconds OR Get a team of 10 mates together and do 6x around the stations for the team to work out for 654 minutes. It’s all about getting mates together to help get through the tough times. $15 per person or $100 per team of 10. A coffee cart will also be on site for your caffeine fix. See the post on the MATES matter NZ Charitable Trust page to purchase tickets.
