Run Round the Bays and fundraise for Fred | The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ

Run Round the Bays and fundraise for Fred

Join us this March at The Ports of Auckland Round the Bays, an 8.4km course from the Auckland CBD to St Heliers Bay. It’s for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities – sign up today then get fundraising on Everyday Hero to help fundraise for Fred Hollows.

Why fundraise? Each and every dollar you raise will go towards our sight-restoring work in the Pacific. When you give someone back their sight, you’re giving them back their life, restoring their independence and dignity. It’s a priceless gift.

When is Round the Bays? The race takes place on Sunday 6 March starting at 9.30am.

Where is it? The start is located at Quay Street and the course continues along Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour to a spectacular finish along St Heliers Bay.

What we can do

Help keep Fred’s dream alive.

4 out of 5 people who are blind in the developing world don't need to be. Routine treatment costing as little as $25 can restore sight and hope.
