"A wonderful community event raising funds for a very worthwhile cause! It was also a time to reflect and remember the people I know who have been affected by cancer. AND I enjoyed a fun walk with friends!"
How you can make a difference
The money you raise through Walking Stars will help to fund breakthrough research and extend a helping hand to cancer patients and their families at a time in their lives when they need it most.
Kiwi scientists are at the forefront of cancer research at the Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre (ACSRC)
The survival rate for many cancers
has improved by up to 30% and today over 60% of cancer patients will survive
more than five years.
But there is so much more to do.
Your support will change lives for the better by ensuring those going through cancer receive compassionate care and support through:
Home visits to cancer patients by Cancer Society Community Liaison Nurses
Free counselling for cancer patients and their families
Advice and information for those affected by cancer though the 0800 Cancer Information line
Help stamp out preventable cancer through health promotion and education
