The new BreastScreen Waite- mata Northland s digital mobile screening unit will be based from March 5 to 9 at Kaukapakapa Hall, 947 Kaipara Coast Highway, and from March 12 to 30 at the Helensville Mitre 10 on 41 Mill Rd. It is open Monday to Friday 8.45am to 3.30pm and Saturday 8.30am to 12.15pm. All it takes is 15 minutes, and it could save you or your loved one s life, BreastScreen Waite- mata Northland programme man- ager Moira McLeod says. A mammogram can detect a cancerous growth as small as 2mm, which is about the size of a grain of rice. By comparison, when a breast cancer can be felt, it is on average 2cm to 3cm. Transport is available to and from appointments if required. Mammograms are available at Waitakere Hospital s Breast- Screen clinic. Call 0800-270-200. Book jogs back club memories Memory job: Author Garth Gilmour recalls the early days of jogging in his new book and their link to Ports of Auckland Round the Bays. Photo: FELICITY REID By FELICITY REID ROUND THE BAYS RUN A ragtag bunch of ageing, unfit and over- weight businessmen teamed up with some revolutionary trainers at the forefront of a world- wide fitness craze in 1962. The end result was the Auckland Joggers Club founded by former city mayor Colin Kay and legendary late athletics coach Arthur Lydiard. The club is based in Cornwall Park and is celebrating its 50th anni- versary this month. Mr Lydiard, who died in 2004, wanted to see everyone everywhere running for their health and well-being. Garth Gilmour, who worked and ran along- side him, has documented the jogging boom in his latest book Running for Our Lives. If I hadn t met Arthur, I would probably be dead, the former journalist, international top-selling author and five-time marathoner says. I threw the cigarettes away and never smoked again. Recreational runners weren t the norm when Lydiard, Kay and Gilmour first took a group jogging in Remu- era on February 11, 1962. Gilmour says group members, who were mainly older people, copped abuse and had bottles thrown at them. The majority of people didn t have any concept of what running could do for them, he says. But Mr Lydiard s methods took off in- ternationallyand turning the unpopular marathon into a phenomenon. Mr Gilmour formed a 40-year, 10-book part- nership with Mr Lydiard and revels in being there when jogging began. The Auckland Joggers Club also initiated the first Ports of Auckland Round the Bays fun run in 1972. It still plays a leading role behind the scenes of the popular annual event alongside Fairfax Media, owner of the Nor-west News and its sister pub- lication in the Suburban newspapers Auckland group. Entries in this year s event on March 18 are now open and all participants in 8.4km long run are encouraged to register. Entry fees are $15 for adults and $10 for chil- dren (16 and under) with all proceeds going to The Child Cancer Foun- dation, Garden to Table Trust and Make a Wish Foundation.
