Rotorua had fun hosting a Wishbone Walk on April 17 2021 & you can see a selection of their photos here  (or click Rotorua Walk in the menu under ABOUT). 

Saturday 15 May was pretty cold & wet in Palmerston North, but nonetheless a group of hardy souls & the Mayor opted to walk the whole 3.4 km Bridge Loop - well done! 

Invercargill knocked it out of the park with their action packed walk inside Southland Hospital on Saturday 15 May & you can see their photos here (or click Invercargill Walk in the menu under ABOUT)
On Sunday 23 May Middlemore Hospital hosted a walk at Manukau Superclinic with refreshments & information in the clinic foyer to warm up after walking in less than balmy weather. You can see a few photos of their undampened supporters here - many thanks to you all!
