Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


Samantha Moore is married to Ryan and has two gorgeous young children, Maddison (7) and Ryleigh (3). In October last year Samantha was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and her world turned upside down. Samantha had intense treatment immediately and for the first time in months she has some reprieve. Thinking a holiday away with her family seemed just the remedy, Samantha approached the Race4Life Trust for a little help.

Thanks to the generosity and kindness shown by the people of Rotorua, Samantha and her family will spend the first weekend of May being totally entertained and looked after.

The family will stay at the Millennium Hotel during their time in Rotorua . They will visit the Polynesian Spa, Rainbow Springs and Amazeme fun park. A ride on the luge, followed by a Gondola ride will take them to the Stratosfare Restaurant where they will dine with one amazing view!!

They will also be treated to meals at the Wairere Café, Capers Epicurean Café and the Atrium Restaurant at Rydges Hotel.

Thank you so much for the stunning community of Rotorua.
