Stepping Up For Fred

Join our team and let's Step Up For Fred!

We are taking on Fred’s Big Run together this August to STEP UP TO RESTORE SIGHT!

And we're inviting EVERYONE across Australia to join our team and get active to continue dad's legacy to give the gift of sight.

Because a simple operation that costs as little as $25 can restore sight to a person who is needlessly blind.

Please step up and join us and let's continue dad's work to help men, women and children living in the poorest communities in the world.

Thank you for your support.
