Pink Walk Get your walking shoes and your pink gear on, and join our Pink Walk to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. Did you know that, every day, nine women are diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand? They’re someone’s mum, sister, grandmother, partner, or friend. Get a team together for a walk round Hamilton Lake, and you’ll help the Waikato Breast Cancer Research Trust continue their work looking for new treatments to beat breast cancer.


Pink Challenge – 5km fun run
Whether you’re a seasoned runner or a beginner, join us on our 4km Button Run to help raise funds for the Waikato Breast Cancer Research Trust. With 3000 women and 25 men diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand every year, we need to fund clinical trials and research to fight it. Either enter solo or get a team together for one lap round Hamilton Lake, and help make the future as bright as a button for those living with breast cancer.


Runners Club Cup – 5km fun run
If you feel like more of a challenge, step up to the start line for the 8km Button Run. You can enter yourself, or as part of a team to run two laps round Hamilton Lake. You’ll be helping raise awareness of breast cancer, and supporting us to raise much-needed funds to continue our research into new, effective treatments. Our research gives light and hope to the thousands of women – and men – diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand each year. Are you in?
