Last month the Pharmacy students were involved in the Dunedin Relay for Life. There were over 30 students involved, and a total of over $2500 raised by the team. It was a fun 24 hours, that involved a lot of walking, a zumba class, a night movie, a complimentary breakfast and plenty of music A highlight of the event was the candle ceremony, where cancer survivors were paid tribute to and celebrated, along with everyone else that has been affected by cancer. There was a speech given by a carer for a cancer patient, that detailed the struggles that cancer brings to those unfortunate enough to be inflicted by the disease. It was for a very good cause and thank-you to those of you who came and got involved!

With 120 students attending our annual flat crawl on Saturday 10th March, it was as vibrant and fun as ever especially with the stunning weather Dunedin put on for us. This year’s theme was intergalactic aliens and it was great to see everyone getting into the spirit of the theme. Best dressed was awarded to Charlotte Brenkley and Shayna Carter with their handmade UFO outfits (pictured below – top left). We had a variety of games throughout the afternoon and everyone enjoyed the barbecue and hot chips. It was great to see the three year levels getting to know each other and making so many memories.
