The NZ Orthopaedic Association will be conducting the Joint Effort Walk on Sunday morning, 18th of April. This walk is held throughout the country and raises money for research into bone and joint conditions. Over the last decade, these funds have greatly assisted surgeons in improving the quality of care for patients.

The walk will be held at 3 sites across Auckland, namely North Shore Hospital, Greenlane Clinical Centre and the Manakau Superclinic. Registration is at the main entrance of each site from 9:30am. Previous patients have been sent forms to obtain sponsorship for a 1km walk at these sites.

There will be displays of orthopaedic implants and demonstrations of surgery on plastic bones. After the walk light refreshments will be provided with a sausage sizzle to round out the morning. A series of prizes are up for grabs including first home, most joints replaced and most steps, to name a few. Our Orthopaedic staff will be onsite to pace patients around the course.

Donations can be made on the day. For those who would like to make a contribution
