RUN TO RAISE

Why not run Ports of Auckland Round the Bays and raise money for charity at the same time?

We’ve just launched our 2019 Charity program and would love to have you involved to help us raise our target of $200,000 for New Zealand charities! Last year Ports of Auckland Round the Bays participants raised an incredible $175,000 and we want to better that in 2018.

You can choose to run for a reason and support a deserving charity close to your heart. There are three ways you or your team can raise money for your chosen charity:

•    Start fundraising - Be a hero for your favourite charity or cause, and create your own personal fundraising page now by clicking on the button below. Or sign up during the registration process!

•    Sponsor a friend - If you are not participating you can still show your support by sponsoring anyone in the event.

•    Donate to a Cause - Make a one-off donation when completing your event entry.

Run with purpose in 2019, and make sure you register for the Ports of Auckland Round the Bays event!
