Support our commitment to find a cure
Bridgestone New Zealand is proud to partner with Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC). Every day in New Zealand, 7 children and adults are diagnosed with a blood cancer such as leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma or a related serious blood condition. The cause is unknown and can strike anyone, of any age at any time, usually with little warning.
Through our commitment to LBC, we have been involved in fundraising drives such as our successful “Drive for a Cure” initiative selling teal valve caps through our network of stores, as well as participation in key events like Shave for a Cure and the Step Up Sky Tower Stair Challenge.
LBC is the only national charity dedicated to improving the quality of life of the patients and families impacted by these diseases. Essential support services are provided throughout the country including support groups, information booklets (in several languages), fact sheets, counselling services, emergency financial support, health professional education and raising awareness. LBC also advocates on the patients’ behalf and funds targeted research for better treatments and potential cures.
