Pink Walk Rotorua

The Pink Walk is a fun family event which takes place annually.
This years walk took place today, with entertainment and food available .
It was a 3.5 km walk around the scenic Rotorua Lakefront, it was great to see 4000 people of the Rotorua community decked out in amazing "hot pink" dress-up in support of breast cancer.
The walk concluded with spot prizes and continued entertainment on the Village Green. The event was run by the Rotorua Breast Cancer Trust as an event to promote breast cancer awareness.

I managed the walk in 40 mins it was difficult to go any faster as the tracks were jam packed with people, many who do not normally walk, parents with children in strollers, the amazing thing was to see the great many men walking all dressed in pink

I am a survivor of breast cancer of 24 yrs, thank you everyone for supporting today, all proceeds went directly to the Breast Cancer Awareness in Rotorua.
