The results are in, and the Nelson Regional Breast and Gynaecological Cancer Trustees are extremely grateful for the efforts of every individual and team who walked, ran, cycled or swam their 100ks for the women on a breast cancer journey in our region. We look forward to sharing with you how your contributions will be used.
We are delighted to announce that the NRBGCT has been chosen as a beneficiary charity of the 100 k’s in 30 Days challenge.
It’s time to dust off the running and walking shoes, pump up the bike tyres, grab a girlfriend or buddy and plan to get pumped about how we can raise funds for the local women of Marlborough, Nelson and Tasman.
