Otago Polytechnic

OPAIC's students and staff volunteered their time to help the Cancer Society with its Walking Stars event on the weekend. 

Walking Stars is a night-time walking half marathon which brings people together to raise funds to support local people living with cancer. It takes place at the Auckland Domain and more than 4,000 people take part.

Fourteen of our students and two of our staff members helped out in the lead up to the event and on the Saturday night. 

They put packs together for attendees last Wednesday, and assisted at the pack pickup on Friday. On Saturday, the team helped with parking, sold tee-shirts, communicated with participants, and controlled crowds in line for the information desk and merchandise. 

Congratulations to everyone who got behind this great cause.
