Challenge on to complete booze-free month

1 comment

For the fourth year running, New Zealanders are being challenged to give up alcohol for the month of February to raise money and support young people and their families with alcohol and other drug problems.

The funds raised by Febfast in 2014 will provide tools and resources to help parents understand and respond to the challenges of alcohol and drug use in their families.

Febfast coordinator Natalia Albert said registration this year was free, which made it "an easy excuse to press pause on alcohol after the busy summer celebration season".

"Giving your body a break gives you a chance to reassess your relationship with alcohol after a season traditionally booze-soaked," she said.

The money raised in 2014 will go towards redeveloping the Get the MSG! text information service. More info is available at
