UQ Global Change Warriors

Brisbane Coastrek 30km

We're taking on Coastrek on 26-July 2019 to transform lives!

We are taking part in Coastrek on July 26th, 2019 in Australia. We'll join amazing women & men trekking and fundraising to proudly support the life chaning work of The Fred Hollows Foundation.

Please sponsor our trek and give the gift of sight to the needlessly blind, see https://www.coastrek.com.au/fundraisers/uqglobalchangewarriors

 

Thank you!

Team Updates

Imagine not being able to see wildflowers or the faces of those you love ...

Will you help our team of Global Change Warriors change lives by supporting life-saving vision surgery?

4 out of 5 people who are blind don't need to be. We're on a mission to change this so that people in developing countries have access to the same quality eye care that the rest of the world takes for granted.

I'm joining hundreds of people walking along scenic coastlines, high clifftops, rough bush trails and thigh burning soft sand to change lives! This fundraiser held on 26-July 2019 to support for the world renown Fred Hollows Foundation to prevent avoidable blindness, restore sight, and transform lives. In many cases, a straightforward 20 minute operation can restore sight or a dose of antibiotics can prevent blindness.

Millions of people are blind simply because they live in poverty. So please consider making a donation, any size is genuinely appreciated, and cheer us on to restore vision so people can lead healthier, productive lives.

Thank you very very much!
