My mum was diagnosed with cancer when I was 8 and she is lucky enough to be a survivor. It is a great cause to support and something which affects so many.
|Doing a circuit with the family.|
My partner John was in the Hokitika Volunteer Fire Brigade Team. The Fire Brigade members did a great job even wearing their full gear while walking the track. The kids & I joined in to do a few circuits of the track & I even had a go carrying the BA (Breathing Apparatus) it was very heavy....I'd hate to think what it would be like having to carry that into a fire!!!
Over $35000 was raised!!!! It was a lovely family oriented weekend and a great way to celebrate life and remember those lost.
