EXPINKT™ (Exercise Training Beyond Breast Cancer)Rehabilitation Programme

expinkt logo small colour

Exercise provides valuable support for cancer patients and survivors through their treatment and helps them cope with related side effects. The EXPINKT™ gym is a NZ one-of-a-kind private gym for cancer survivors of all ages and ethnicities to come together, take comfort, and rehabilitate from primary clinical treatment.

Clients are given individualised and carefully supervised training for six to eight months before 'graduating' to group classes. Significant improvements in fitness, muscular strength, and quality of life have been observed. Today the gym sees 120 EXPINKT™ gym members participating each week, some twice a week. There is nowhere in New Zealand that provides the type of support offered at Otago's EXPINKT™ gym. Your support will ensure this valuable programme continues to be of service to our community for the next three years.

Student-driven change through volunteering and leadership

The Social Impact Studio is the next evolution of the University Volunteer Centre. The Studio is about student-driven change through volunteering and leadership. It will be a hub for social impact through creativity and innovation … a place where Otago students, staff, faculty and community work together to design and implement projects that benefit our society and environment.

Students care deeply about social issues like belonging, purpose, quality education, mental health and wellbeing and these are reflected in our key student-led social action projects.

Our vision for a Social Impact Studio relies on your financial support to succeed. Become part of our future story by supporting our key student-led social action projects and helping to maximise Otago’s positive student-led involvement and engagement.
