Wellington Round the Bays 2021

21 February 2021

Everyone knows someone affected by cancer. 

The Cancer Society understands how a cancer diagnosis can affect every aspect of your life. We're here to help you and your whānau through. 

Through our advocacy and promotion of healthy lifestyle choices, we work towards a cancer-free future for all New Zealanders. Being active is one of those healthy lifestyle choices, and that's why we get behind Round The Bays with our own team and provide all participants with shaded areas and free sunscreen.

You'll also provide emotional support services that make so much difference to people affected by cancer with our Free 0800 information line, and confidential phone and face-to-face counselling.
