Fundraise for charity and win
The Whaiora Spirited Women Adventure Race has formed a relationship with the PINC & STEEL – Cancer Rehabilitation Trust, to help raise valuable funds for their cause.
PINC & STEEL is a dedicated charity investing in rehabilitation for people who have been diagnosed with cancer. More New Zealanders than ever are being diagnosed with cancer and more are surviving the often grueling treatments. Cancer surgery and treatment can have devastating physical effects and if left untreated, prevent those recovering from living a truly full life.
There is increasing evidence that physical activity has beneficial effects for several aspects of cancer survivor-ship specifically, weight gain, quality of life, cancer recurrence or progression, and prognosis (likelihood of survival). New cancer treatments are helping people live longer, and consequently it is critical that we help them live better. Rehabilitation and exercise is a vital component to achieving this.
The financial burden of a cancer diagnosis affects patients and their families from all communities and there is no ACC or Government funding for cancer rehabilitation in New Zealand. The PINC & STEEL Trust raises funds to subsidise the cost of rehabilitation for men, women and young people after a cancer diagnosis and has a dedicated group of certified physiotherapists throughout the country delivering this essential service.
