Walking Stars is a night-time walking marathon that brings people together to raise vital funds in supporting local people living with cancer. Starting after sun down at Auckland Domain, the 21.2 km route takes you on a magical starlit walk past some of Auckland’s finest landmarks.
Each walker gets their own online fundraising page, with all funds raised going directly to support local people living with cancer. In 2018, Walking Stars participants together raised over $500,000, an amazing contribution.
Your entry includes:
- Event entry
- Training plans
- Walker number
- Hydration stations en route
- Walking Stars 2019 medal on completion
- Memorable experience (to be repeated again and again)
Your registration fee covers the cost of the event and fundraising efforts will support work of the Cancer Society. You will have your own fundraising page to share with your friends and family, and every dollar you raise helps fund cancer research, support and prevention.
Police say they have exhausted all leads for finding Eloi Rolland, 18, who has been missing from Auckland for almost four months.
The teen, who has limited English, has not been seen since he was captured on CCTV at the Britomart train station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn's Fruitvale Rd station. It's understood he was in the vicinity of Piha Rd and Scenic Drive at 9.18am, but this is where the trail ends.
After more than 1600 hours searching for Rolland, police ended the physical search in May, pending reports of new information or evidence.
Rolland's sister, Aurore Rolland, told Stuff the family were "really sad" the search had been suspended.
"We [are at] the point where we are waiting for a miracle. We believe [he] is not dead in the sea at Piha Beach. Things need to be done, even if we have to search during our entire life."
