ST JOHN FUNDRAISER

The Premise

What started as a spitball idea between two guys that had just met that morning has become a world record attempt, an opportunity to raise funds for St John Ambulance service and raise awareness for mental health.

Jason Medina, who says St John helped him through his own mental health challenges,  is jumping for everyone who needs help but doesn’t know where to start. St John have to raise around $57,000 per day, in the South Island alone, to maintain their operation and we want to give them all of the help we can.

WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT COMPLETE

Jason Medina successfully completed 100 Canyon Swings on Thursday 17th September. The rainy conditions made the task even more challenging but he stayed positive, energetic and powered through.

We managed to raise around $14,069.69 for St John to help them to keep helping us.
