Southland Wishbone 2021
Text

For over 25 years Wishbone Walks have funded NZ based orthopaedic research that transforms people’s lives through increased mobility and aims to help patients recover more quickly from injury or skeletal pain. All over New Zealand our orthopaedic specialists host fundraising events for research that then benefits New Zealanders of all ages. Please join them in making a difference.

It’s all about helping…

Text

Amanda broke her back in 2001 and had previously broken her ankle, her mum has had two shoulder replacements, her aunt has had a broken shoulder, and her mother-in-law and grandmother have had hip replacements, so their family is very aware of what orthopaedic services support.

Amanda says her and her mum both received amazing care during their surgery and in rehab so when they found out about Wishbone walks & their aims, she was quick to sign her & husband Shane up for the stair climb at Eden Park.
