A group of twenty Year 9 students were privileged to join in a national walk for arthritis event this week.
A young man names Kaz who is a nursing student from Dunedin is walking from Bluff to Cape Reinga in 66 days! He has been inspired to do the walk by people he has cared for who suffer from arthritis.
Aquinas College students joined him on his journey for a morning as he crossed through Pyes Pa, with their Dean Paula Skelton and Louise Mabbett.
The students brought a donation for the cause and meanwhile, back at school, Olivia Dennis and her friends organised a bake sale to boost the funds.
All together over $200 was raised to help Arthritis New Zealand.
Ka Pai Year 9!
