Will you save lives? Will you be a star?
8 women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand and more than 600 women will die every year.
We want this to end now.
This year we need you to be a Star and help to raise funds for three very important aspects of our work which will save lives and support women with the disease.
100% of the money you raise online will go back towards breast cancer research, education on the signs and symptoms and supporting women with breast cancer.
The cost of your ticket covers the cost of the walk; in order to make a real difference we’re asking all walkers to consider going the extra mile and fundraising. We need YOU to be a STAR!
It’s super easy and we’ll even help you along with some great fundraising tips and tricks!
Once you’ve registered you’ll be given the opportunity to set up an online fundraising page safe in the knowledge every cent you raise will fund critical work by The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
What your money can do
Here in New Zealand, we have world-class researchers who are passionate about making a difference for kiwi women. Right now, we’re funding clinical trials and research across NZ and we fund Breast Cancer Patient Registers in Auckland, Waikato, Wellington and Christchurch. We’re always on the lookout for exciting new research opportunities.
The Foundation is also committed to raising awareness and educating New Zealanders of the importance of early detection of breast cancer, promoting the practice of breast awareness and encouraging regular breast screening mammograms from the age of 40. We do this through our Awareness Campaigns and our National Education Programmes.
Another main focus for The NZBCF is supporting women recovering from or living with breast cancer. We fund a number of programmes which help women regain strength and confidence following surgery and provide practical support to the hundreds of New Zealander's living with secondary/ life limiting breast cancer.
By raising just $250 you could help with the following:
- Three counselling sessions for two women recovering from or living with breast cancer.
- Six tumour samples from the tissue bank used for genetic testing in research studies.
- Hundreds of breast books distributed around the country to help keep women safe.
- Much more in the areas of research, education and support.
Will you set up a fundraising page with a target of $250 and allow one more woman to benefit from a life changing programme?
Raising money online couldn’t be simpler. Once you’ve set up your fundraising page your friends and family can sponsor you from anywhere at any time. Don’t forget 100% of the money you raise will go back into supporting New Zealand women and saving lives.
