Hi guys,
There are numerous great causes around right now that need a helping hand. If you know of other worthwhile causes that could do with a bit more of public promotion, that would be great.


Steps for life is a non-profit organisation founded by ex NZ Warrior Monty Betham in 2009.

The organisation is dedicated to reducing the rate of obesity which affects 1 in 12 New Zealand children and 1 in 4 New Zealand adults.

Currently 1 in 12 New Zealand children are obese with 1 in 5 overweight. Obesity is the main modifiable driver of the type 2 diabetes epidemic and a significant factor for other diseases such as cardiovascular disease, ischaemic stroke and several common cancers. Obesity in childhood and adolescence is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in adulthood.

Our children are our future and it is our responsibility to ensure that they reach their full potential and have a good start in life. The Monty Betham ‘Steps for Life’ Foundation is focused on empowering young New Zealander’s and their families to make real sustainable changes that will reduce the rate of obesity in New Zealand and enable our youth to reach their full potential in life.

If you are able, donate to the good cause or perhaps go one better and be a volunteer. All information on the website.
