Great Kiwi Bookathon

We're fundraising for...

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

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

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