National Party Leader
It is not often I go searching in my wardrobe for something pink to wear. Apart from ties, pink isn’t a feature in my work attire, but there is always an exception for a good cause.
On Wednesday evening my wife Natalie and I will be decked out in pink for this year’s Hot Pink Walk.
We want to show our support and remember those people who have had breast cancer, and their families and friends who have supported them.
The event has been running for 10 years. It is a flamboyant and fun walk with entertainment along the way and it makes me truly proud to be part of a community with such heart.
In Tauranga, 120 people were referred to the Breast Cancer Support Service last year. I was interested to read that while breast cancer occurs mainly in women, men can get it too.
If you haven’t taken part in the Hot Pink Walk before, then please join us. It starts on The Strand at 5.30pm this Wednesday (October 10).
Attendance is by donation and everyone is welcome. Don’t forget to wear something pink. For tickets and for more information, check out: www.hotpinkwalk.co.nz
