Skate4Cancer in NZ

Skate4Cancer In New Zealand Press Release

* Originating in 2004, Skate4Cancer is a not for profit grassroots organization that raises awareness of cancer, primarily targeting a youth demographic. We operate by skateboarding the width or length of a country (whichever is longest) in order to draw attention to our cause. Once that is accomplished, we promote a variety of campaigns that focus on healthy and preventative lifestyles ranging from self-breast examinations to healthy eating.

* After covering the majority of North America, we’ve decided to take on the world. Beginning in early January, we’ll be skating from Auckland to Dunedin. That means skateboarding every Kilometre, never skipping any portion. After that, we head to Australia to face one of the biggest challenges yet!

* Our website ( offers a comprehensive detailing of our mission, history as well as other important information. Currently, the most vital tool for our cause is publicity. If we gather attention, we can mobilize young people and start saving lives. If your organization is at all interested in covering our skate, please contact:

The Skate4Cancer Team

This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
