Let’s rock it for Reuben!!

There’s not a lot you can do when your kid has cancer, and that sucks. Reuben has a dragon to fight - luckily, he has a team of clever and caring people behind him, from the oncology professionals at Wellington Hospital to the kind supporters at the Cancer Society.  

Walking Stars is one little thing I can do to help. It’s a night-time walking half marathon to rise funds in support of local people living with cancer.

I would love your support too. It’s how we fight this dragon - together. 

My Updates

We did it!!

Fun and fundraising Nov 11

Thursday 5th Nov
Come to our show and see hilarious things like me pretending to brush my teeth.

Come out for fun and fundraising!

Thursday 5th Nov
So I’ve been training in improv theatre for nearly 2 years with a group of hugely talented people. This term we’ve got so bloody awesome our “class” is a performance every Wednesday night. It’s fast and it’s fun - and this week they want to donate ALL ticket sales to the Team Fitztastic Walking Stars campaign!!  The theatre has only 50 seats - I’m sure we can fill them all.  So pull out the stops and join us, Wednesday 11 November, 730pm at Drama Christi Theatre, next to the Wesley Church in Taranaki St, Wellington. Facebook event coming soon!

Phenomenal!

Tuesday 3rd Nov
Who needs training - I’ll be walking on air.

Save some for March, lol

Tuesday 3rd Nov
By the way Reuben will be doing his own fundraising under the “Relay for Life” banner for his school in March - so save some for then!! 

Plus plus plus - Neil has signed up to Walking Stars too - yaaaay!!

Target revised - thank you!!

Tuesday 3rd Nov
AMAZING.  Within 3 hours of posting this on Facebook my fundraising target was smashed!!! So I’ve hoiked it up to $3000 - why not. The Cancer Society will be grateful for the money - and Reuben, Neil and I are just so grateful for the love it represents. We hear what you’re saying. Thank you. xxx
