Round the Bays

A huge thanks to supporters of Big Buddy Round the Bays!

Big Buddy was lucky enough to be one of the Ports of Auckland partner charities of this 40-year-old fun run in March 2019. So many people showed their support for what we do by running, walking and raising money for the cause. Together, we raised over $6000!!

...we also got a $20k slice of Ports of Auckland Round the Bays fundraising pie!

It's times like this the team at Big Buddy feels incredibly grateful to work with kind-hearted men on creating more fulfilled lives for boys who don't have dads. Ports of Auckland and the team at Stuff thought so too, which is why we got a slice of their fundraising pie - Seacleaners and Diabetes Auckland received the same generosity.

Special thanks to top fundraisers Shane Brown, Ivan Alexandrov and Samantha Miles who each won a Spark Nokia 1 smartphone.
