Lifewise Mental Health & Addictions - Rotorua Ekiden 2014

Running a boot camp is all part of day-to-day work for the team at Lifewise in Rotorua. As part of their mental health & addictions programme, they use a health & fitness approach to support people to gain confidence and optimism, growing their health and well-being.?

So what do they do on their weekends off!?They get together and run a marathon!

We'd like to congratulate Paula Lemon, Paula Coller, Sinitia Lee, Jade Kameta, Shane Unuwai and service manager Haehaetu Barrett for smashing the annual Ekedin marathon. You did Lifewise proud!

Expressions of interests for W4Y roundtables
We are looking at a variety of ideas for holding the W4Y roundtables. We would like people to volunteer their knowledge and their time for the roundtable meetings. You would only have to hold one meeting at your place or at the Rotorua Youth centre. It is an opportunity to share your workplace vision, skills and knowledge. If you have any ideas moving W4Y forward and sharing information please contact working4youth "at"
