Do you want to ride a 600m-long inflatable slide down a picturesque West Auckland slope? Read on.

The world's biggest waterslide is back,or could be. The guys at LiveMoreAwesome, a foundation fighting against depression, are currently fundraising for the $100,000 project which includes the slide and some other 'awesome' contra depression initiatives.

LiveMoreAwesome is a New Zealand-based charity which was started by Jimi Hunt and Dan Drupsteen, who had both suffered from depression at points in their lives. According to their website, the charity was "an idea based around the fact that if they continued to strive for better things and live more awesome, then there was no way that depression would ever get them again. So far, it’s working."

They have one week to raise the funds, with the tentative dates for the slide set at March 28-29 2015.
