Join the Variety Red Runners at Round the Bays!

Sunday, 10 March 2013 to Sunday, 10 March 2013

We are thrilled to be chosen as one of the charity recipients of the Ports of Auckland Round the Bays walk or run taking place Sunday 10 March, 2013!

All funds raised through our involvement in Round the Bays will go towards our Laptops for Learning Programme. Research has shown that access to personal IT devices can improve literacy rates. However, many young people do not have books in their homes, let alone access to technology. Through our Laptops for Learning Programme, in partnership with The Warehouse, we want all young people to utilise a digital device as part of their in-class learning. We aim to raise enough funds through Round the Bays to give 20 laptops to each of the following low decile Auckland secondary schools: De La Salle College, Tamaki College, Otahuhu College, McAuley High School and Mangere College.

Join the Variety Red Runners and help us give 6,500 Auckland secondary school students the quality education they deserve!

  • Fundraise a minimum of $100 online and you will receive your very own FREE personalised running singlet* (printed with your name or nickname on the back!)
  • Receive regular tips and advice leading up to the event from well-known Kiwi runners Hamish Carter, Jayne Kiely and Nick Willis (plus join some of these guys on the day!)
  • Enjoy the Variety post-run party on the day (only for those with a singlet)

    There will be great prizes for the top fundraisers, including a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 smartphone! Other prizes to be announced soon...
