Round the Bays - Sunday, March 8 2020

It’s time to run domestic violence out of town!

Join Team Shine for Ports of Auckland Round the Bays 2020 to shine a light on domestic violence. 

Round the Bays is a fun run but for our more competitive supporters, we’ve added a challenge to become Shine’s Champions of Change 2020… see details below. 

If you’re ready to run domestic violence out of town then join us:

1. Register at and select ‘Shine’ from the list of charities. To get 20% off your entry fee, drop Carol a line for a promo code at, but be quick - these are strictly limited! You can enter as an individual or create a team page to run, jog or walk with your family, friends or workmates along 8.4km of Auckland’s stunning waterfront. 

2. Create your own Everydayhero fundraising page by going to the Team Shine page and selecting 'Join Team'. When you join Team Shine, you'll have access to awesome resources and support for your fundraising. 

  • Shine's support crew cheering you loudly and proudly 
  • Post-run hospitality and celebration with the Shine team - including BBQ! 

Every $250 raised can change the life of a family by covering the cost of a Shine advocate’s urgent callout to a family after an arrest. You’ll be saving lives with every dollar raised. Our target for Team Shine in this year’s Round the Bays is $30,000, which will help us support over 120 families!  

Become Champions of Change 

This year you or your team can win the inaugural Champions of Change trophy by taking part in Round the Bays for Shine. The trophy will be awarded to the team (or individual) with the highest points on 21st March.
So how do you earn points?

  • 1 point for every dollar raised
