Rochelle Benson

Most people are touched by cancer at some point in their lives. Whether it’s personally, or through immediate or extended family, friends, friends of friends or work colleagues. I want to honour everyone affected by cancer and their wonderful supporters

Walking Stars is a night-time walking half marathon bringing people together to raise vital funds in support of local people living with cancer.

I would love your support as I take on this personal challenge of completing a half-marathon for a great cause.

My Updates

Hard at work

Saturday 14th Nov
Have walked 50kms this week in preparation for next weekend’s big 21km walk. Fair to say feet are a little tender in places but fingers crossed it won’t impact too much on my training walks next week.

Wahoo Target reached

Sunday 8th Nov
Feeling a little overwhelmed having reached my target in 4 days. Super grateful to everyone who has donated and enabled me to raise this money for the Cancer Society.

Half way there

Thursday 5th Nov
In less than 48 hours my generous friends have helped  me  reach half my goal. With that $500 my sponsors will see their money enable the Cancer Society to provide 4x counselling sessions,  cover running costs for accommodation to out of town patients and will help volunteer drivers to drive 21 patients to treatment. THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO HAS DONATED SO FAR, YOU’RE AMAZING 🥰

Training Day

Wednesday 4th Nov
Walked 10kms today in my gym shoes not my usual trail shoes. Got a small blister  😬Not a good start  to day 1 of training when you only have two & a half weeks until the event

Thank you to my Sponsors
