The Fred Hollows Foundation is proud to be the beneficiary of the Goodman Magic Mile Charity Ramp Run again this year.
The funds raised from the event will support a major eye care project over the next two years in Gansu Province in Western China. The project will train and empower local eye doctors, nurses and health workers to create a sustainable system of care.
The Magic Mile involves corporate teams, families and individuals running or walking up Goodman Interlink’s 15-floor cargo ramp. In addition to the main race, this year’s event will also feature a new blindfolded race to recreate the experience of being visually impaired.
Last year, more than 600 participants successfully raised HK$1.27 million for the project.
Laura Lee, The Fred Hollows Foundation’s Chief Representative of Hong Kong and ASEAN, thanked Goodman for supporting The Foundation’s sight saving work in China
“Just in the first year of the project, we have already started sending a surgeon, nurses and optometrists for training. We also provided basic eye health training to over 200 village doctors, community health workers and teachers. We look forward to more successful work in the coming years,” she said.
Goodman, an Australian company with an expanding footprint in China, is a Founding Partner of The Fred Hollows Foundation Hong Kong.
