I’m a personal trainer and a member of our Bootcamp group, Natalie, was diagnosed with breast cancer before last year’s Pink Star Walk. To raise money, we decided to donate a dollar for everyone who attended Bootcamp the month before the walk. On the day there was a group of us that did the walk together. It was a great evening, made even more special when Natalie came along to cheer us on at the end!”

“I lost my mother to breast cancer 10 years ago and then in 2013 I was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. My friends had to push me 10km in a wheelchair as I had just undergone breast reconstruction. My fundraising page also inspired others to do the walk with me, they wanted to do more than donate - they wanted to participate. I am really excited about participating again this year. The walk coincides with my anniversary for being cancer free! That’s every reason to do it!!”
