Trudi & Leah picWe are incredibly proud of our staff member Trudi Diamond, who together with her sister Leah Booth is in training to walk a half-marathon to raise funds for the Cancer Society.  An integral part of our busy Audit team, Trudi and her sister Leah lost their sister Kim to spinal cancer six years ago, at the age of just 29 years old.  This year the night-time ‘Walking Stars’ half-marathon is scheduled for 22nd November 2014, which happens to be Kim’s birthday.  The sisters thought it fitting to do the walk together to remember Kim on her birthday.

It was great to see the sisters’ story featured in The New Zealand Women’s Weekly in their October 27 issue, which you can read in full here: NZWW WalkingStars article.  We all wish Trudi and Leah the best of luck for the walk and hope they receive a lot of support.

Walking Stars takes place on 22nd November 2014 at 8pm in the Auckland Domain.  For more information or to register, go to http://www.walkingstars.org.nz/.   To support Trudi and Leah, a donation can be made at https://walkingstars2014.everydayhero.com/nz/3-sisters-1.
