Support Andy to RESTORE SIGHT!!

Fred’s words were “caring about other people is what being human is all about”.  No truer words have been said.

 

I am proud to be participating in Fred’s Big Run for the third year in a row to help raise much-needed funds to help restore sight to the needless blind.

 

This August I will be out walking – rain, hail, or shine.  This year I will be taking my new trusted companion, Audrey, my awesome white cane together with my amazing walkers!

 

As Fred said, “every eye is an eye” and together we can raise funds and make the world a better place.  Stepping out of my comfort zone, and challenging myself to support The Fred Hollows Foundation to continue the legacy of an Australian legend, Prof Fred Hollows, is now one of my annual highlights.

 

Right now, 4 out of 5 people who are blind don't need to be...

 

Last year was 40 years since I had the pleasure of meeting Fred as his patient. He was inspiring in every way. Going blind slowly, day by day is maddening but he made me appreciate that the only way to survive and thrive is to be positive and look on the bright side of life every day. I am following Fred’s advice and this year, more than ever, I am on the path to making a difference in this world.

 

For as little as $25, you can restore sight to someone who is blind, and change their life forever. Please make a donation and support my challenge to give the gift of sight – there is no better gift.

 

Fred Hollows' dream was to live in a world where no one was needlessly blind, let’s make Fred’s dream come true together.

 

Over the past 2 years with my kind and generous donors, I have raised over $9,000 and restored the sight of over 300 people! I am so proud of all of us. I could not do this without you.  This year, for the first time, I am hosting a Movie Fundraising Event at Dendy Newtown on Wednesday, 24 August 6-9 pm filled with treats & prizes and featuring the classic, Breakfast at Tiffany's.  Hope to see you there, follow this link for tickets -
