Great Kiwi Bookathon

I'm fundraising for...

The Great Kiwi Bookathon is a first for Blind Low Vision NZ.

Throughout the month of June I will be joining 3000+ Kiwi schoolkids and reading as many books as I possibly can.

I’ll be raising money for those who are blind, deafblind or have low vision so please support me in this.

I've read 101 books
