Terrier Race Against Time Committee was set up by 6 local women to provide support for all women diagnosed with Breast Cancer in the Gisbor
Every women diagnosed with Breast Cancer in the Tairawhiti/ East Coast region is given a satchel which has been donated by "The Terrier Race Against Time" Committee. This satchel includes vouchers(to be redeemed at different businesses around Gisborne. eg: health shop, Chemist, Bookshop, Beauty, Firewood) and books, pedometer, and other useful information that the women may need
We have been fundraising since 2006 and are still going strong. We have had loads of positive feedback from the women who receive our packs and all of them say "they really appreciate our support and that at the time when they are diagnosed they are feeling so low and that the packs cheer them up !"
