A HUGE thank you to so many individuals, volunteers, businesses and groups for being a part of the 2019 Pink Walk and Button Run! 

A very special thank you to our gold sponsor for eight years now, Braemar Hospital Your ongoing support is truly appreaciated and not only covers the cost of the running this event but also keeps everyone fed after with a great sausage sizzle!

Thank you to SBI Productions for their incredible donation of sound, lighting, screen and live feed again this year. Russell and the team worked extremely hard yesterday for us and we’re excited to see the footage from the event.

Heartfelt thanks goes to Red Events and Errol Newlands for their continued support of the Waikato Breast Cancer Research Trust.

There were many others who contributed to the success of the event…our volunteers that helped with registrations, giving out bibs, selling merchandise and raffle tickets, timing, marshalling, cooking sausages, setting up, packing away and everything else in between! We could not do it without each and every one of our volunteers! 

Thank you to Camille for being our fabulous MC and the whole team from The Breeze Waikato for their support, as well as the Waikato Treasure ChestsWaikato Rugby and Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic for coming on down and the team from Chartwell Curves for warming up the crowd.

Thanks to Winger Hamilton and Schick Civil Construction for helping us share the event with a sign written car and the Waikato Business News for another great feature on breast cancer awareness.

It was great having Mercury support us again this year by providing their marquee and Allied Security Ltd for looking after it overnight as well as Vege-King donating fruit at the finish line. Alicia Sim Artistry also did some beautiful face painting.

The Meraki were fantastic at entertaining the crowd! Thanks to TR Group Truck & Trailer Rental NZ for providing their stage to perform on!
