Round The Bays - Sunday, March 3, 2019

Come and Join ‘Team Shine’ for Ports of Auckland Round the Bays 2019 and make your run count. You can get a discount on your entry fee if you get in quick! (Details below). 

Mark the start of Shine's ‘Light it Orange’ appeal week and join us on the start line on Sunday 3rd March 2019. 

Run, jog or walk with your family, friends, or work colleagues along the stunning 8.4km course from Quay Street along the Waitemata Harbour to a spectacular finish along St Heliers Bay.

You will help raise awareness of family violence here in New Zealand, and raise much needed funds to help victims of family violence get safe and stay safe.

For every $250 raised, you can change the life of a family by covering the cost of a Shine advocate’s urgent callout to a family after an arrest, plus a follow up first home visit by a KIDshine specialist who supports children exposed to domestic abuse. With your help, we hope to raise $10,000 and support over 40 families from this year’s Round the Bays fun run.

Joining ‘Team Shine’ is super easy:

1. Firstly enter yourself at and select ‘Shine’ from the list of charities. For 30% discount off your entry, drop Carol a line for a promo code at, but be quick - these are limited!

2. Join the team here to activate your place in ‘Team Shine’ with your own online fundraising page.

As part of ‘Team Shine’ for the Ports of Auckland Round the Bays 2019, we will support you with:

  • Shine ‘Light it Orange’ T-shirt when you raise over $250 (the cost of supporting a family escaping an abusive home)
  • Online fundraising web page & support
  • ‘Light it Orange’ support crew to cheer you on the day
  • Post-race hospitality and celebration with the Shine team - includes BBQ!
  • Becoming a valued ongoing supporter of Shine.

“Staying at the Shine Refuge has been an absolute life changing experience for myself and my daughters. I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am for the enormous amount of help we have received from the ladies at the house.”
