The event aims to show that people with disabilities and their families have the same human rights as every- one else, that they have choice and control over the support they need to go about their daily lives and should be able to participate in all aspects of their communities. Waiheke Health Trust occupational therapist Stephanie Hessell says it would be good for people with disabili- ties or who have family with disabili- ties to know about the event. Organisations that provide products and services that facilitate a better life for the aged and disabled will be on show. The Big Event will also celebrate the commitment made by the thousands of support workers and will highlight dis- ability issues to the wider community. For young disabled people, the free event also showcases two rock bands, Rudely Interrupted and the Mutes, and activities including vertical bungy, gladiator jousting, mechanical surf- board, ten-pin bowling and sumo suit wrestling on Saturday.

BEINTOWIN TEST TICKETS International rugby league heads back to Eden Park when the Kiwis play the Kangaroos in the VB Test on April 20.The Kiwis have had a tough time against the Aussies in the past but there are good reasons for optimism in 2012. It is a home game and the last one, back in 1998, resulted in a 22-16 win for New Zealand. This year's test match will also be played on a stand-alone weekend that features no NRL matches. Commentators say the retirement of long-term Australian skipper Darren Lockyer mightn't be unhelpful either. The Waiheke Marketplace has five double passes to give away to the game. Simply email the editor at editor@ waihekemarketplace. co.nz by March 21 for your chance to win. Remember to type IRB Test Competition in the subject line, along with telephone contact details. Entries can also be posted to Waiheke Marketplace, PO Box 185, Oneroa, Waiheke Island. Celebrating sweet 16 in style Birthday guest: Chloe Cunningham with Shortland Street star Ido Drent. Photo: RHIANNON HORRELL Sixteen is a milestone to be celebrated. And Chloe Cunningham wasn t about to let ill health stop her having the party of a lifetime. She marked the event with 60 close friends and family members at the Nathan Club in Britomart -- courtesy of the Make A Wish Foundation. Chloe has a degenerative disease and was thrilled when Shortland Street star Ido Drent turned up to say happy birthday. More celebrities wished her well on a big screen later in the evening. It was all a dream come true for Chloe who had her hair and make-up done before being picked up by a limou- sine and driven to the venue in style. Make A Wish grants the wishes of children with life- threatening medical condi- tions. Chloe is one of close to 200 beneficiaries this year. The foundation s activities are funded through a variety of sources and it will receive a large donation from proceeds of this year s 8.4km Ports of Auckland Round the Bays fun run. Other charities benefiting from the event will include The Child Cancer Foun- dation, and the Garden to Table Trust. The March 18 run starts at 9.30am and is partly sponsored by Fairfax New Zealand, owner of the Wai- heke Marketplace and its sis- ter publications in the Sub- urban Newspapers stable. Entry costs $10 for children 15 and under and $15 for adults. Registrations can be done online at www.roundthebays. co.nz.
