Walk for breast cancer with the Pink Star Walk

Walk for breast cancer with the Pink Star Walk
The NZ Breast Cancer Foundation wants you to take part in the pinkest night walk Auckland has seen.

A twilight walk in the Auckland Domain on Saturday October 5 will be one of the main Breast Cancer Month events this year.

The Estee Lauder Companies Pink Star Walk will raise funds for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Pink Star Walk is back by popular demand after a three-year absence, says NZBCF chief executive Van Henderson. “The walk is a great chance to get a bunch of friends together, enjoy some entertainment beforehand, then walk – or stroll, or power-walk – beneath the stars.”

The entertainment starts at 7pm, before participants head off on the walk, which has five and 10 kilometre variations. The 10-kilometre walk heads through Parnell and takes in a stretch of Tamaki Drive before returning to the Domain. The walk is suited to women, men and children of all ages and fitness levels – wearing pink is encouraged but not compulsory!

Funds raised through the sale of entry tickets and through individual sponsorship will go towards NZBCF funding of breast cancer research in New Zealand. Walkers have the option to set up an online fundraising page and will receive fundraising tips from the NZBCF.

Entry costs $25 online before the event and $30 on the night. Children under 16 are $10 in advance or $15 on the night. Online entries close at 5pm on Friday October 4. The first 500 registrants will receive a pair of New Balance pink shoelaces in their event pack.
