Aranui Eagles Rugby League Club take on iGYB

Over the last couple of months and the months ahead we’ve had the opportunity to hold some really cool conversations with the Aranui Eagles Rugby League Club from their Premier teams right down to their Junior teams about how we can better look after ourselves and each other.

Suicide is huge in Aotearoa and the fact that Suicide is near triple the Road toll every year and that only together we can stop this Sad Killer.

Aranui Eagles have taken on the message of Suicide Prevention because they care about their Club and their Community and believe that together, we can stop this killer and together we can support each other through tough and sad times.

We’ve been lucky enough to share our message of I’ve Got Your Back, an empowerment conversation about Support and Love, it’s about being at our lowest, and who is there to help pick us up? iGYB is about knowing that you’re not alone and there will be someone who always has your back, iGYB is about creating leaders and rolemodels for our communities.

And to see the Aranui Eagles take this challenge up and run with it full flight shows us all that ahakoa te aha kei a mātou te tikanga – No matter what, it’s up to us all to make the changes and if we support each other then we all have a role to play.

There will be more updates over the coming weeks and months and if you want to learn more about iGYB – I Got Your Back and how we can better work together then call us now at He Waka Tapu on 0800 HE WAKA (439 252) and ask for Ra Dallas or Zion Tauamiti.
