In the running for big lake relay On the run: Former Dancing with the Stars competitor Aaron Gilmore is taking part in the 155km Great Lake Relay around Lake Taupo this month for the Mental Health Foundation. Photo: JASON OXENHAM By SCOTT MORGAN He's used to whirling a partner around the floor but former Dancing with the Stars competitor Aaron Gilmore is set to get his feet moving in a different way. The Epsom resident is taking part in the Great Lake Relay, which is a 155km race around Lake Taupo, as part of the 18-person Mental Health Foundation team. For me it's a good cause and a great way to raise awareness.'' Mr Gilmore, who won Dancing with the Stars with partner Lorraine Downs in 2006, predicts he will run between 16km and 20km during the event on February 19. He says it wasn't a hard decision to get involved after suffering depression as a youngster. It probably affects more people than you care to talk about. At the time you don't see a lot of choices and options there. It's about knowing people come out the other side.'' Along with talking to friends and family about difficult issues, Mr Gilmore says getting involved in an activity can help people get back on track. Things like dance, where you have something you can express yourself in is great. It's about getting active and not slipping into that poor me' mentality. Some people write, some paint. For me it was dance.'' He's got a busy schedule teaching dance which limits his training time but Mr Gilmore hopes the physical nature of his job will get him through the race. Other celebrity am- bassadors taking part in the relay include former squash world champion Dame Susan Devoy, 10-time national wake- boarding champion Andrea Fountain and actress Nicola Kawana. Mental Health Foun- dation chief executive Judi Clements says it's great the ambassadors are willing to give up their time for the cause. Their participation sup- ports our vision of creating communities where all people flourish. With the support of our ambassadors we know that the Great Lake Relay will not only be financially ben- eficial to the foundation but will also be another way for us to promote the connec- tion between a healthy mind and a healthy body.''

Avondale police patrol group commander Ross Endicott- Davies says a street robbery unfolded at 4.15pm on Febru- ary 6 at Racecourse Parade. A man was walking near the Avondale racecourse when he was accosted by three males. He was punched and kicked and had his mobile phone and cash taken. The males ran off from the scene.'' The offenders are thought to be Maori or Polynesian teenagers. Fifteen minutes later, a woman was the victim of a handbag snatch incident on Dominion Rd. Mr Endicott- Davies says the woman was outside a takeaway bar when a man approached her. She was pulled to the ground and dragged in an attempt to take the bag. Passersby intervened and the man left in a stolen Subaru stationwagon with regis- tration EBE152.'' A Mt Eden liquor shop was also burgled over the weekend. A police pursuit was later abandoned but the van and some of the stolen property was recovered. Police are also looking into a deliberately lit fire discovered on Great North Rd in the early hours of Sunday morning.
