Buy purchasing your ticket to the LiveFit Wellness Series, you're helping to provide a better start for disadvantaged Māori and Pasifika students in NZ through our ticket partner, Humanitix, who provide 100% of their profits to fund education for disadvantaged kids.

New Zealand’s education gap is one of the largest in the world and Māori and Pasifika students face many unique challenges that have made education gaps difficult to close. Māori and Pasifika students are less likely to leave the education system with a qualification and more likely to leave school with a qualification below NCEA level 1. This project supports New Zealand learners and families who find it difficult to access or afford local, global and digital citizenship to close the gap.
