Step Up to Restore Sight: Eureka Stair Climb helps The Fred Hollows Foundation to end avoidable blindness

One of Australia’s most iconic landmarks, the Eureka Tower, has joined forces with The Fred Hollows Foundation to invite people to ‘step up for sight’ by taking on the 11th annual Eureka Stair Climb on Sunday 25 November.

For the first time, Australia’s premier stair climbing event has partnered with The Fred Hollows Foundation to raise vital funds for its work to end avoidable blindness.

Not only will participants push themselves physically and mentally to ascend the 1,642 steps, or 88 floors, to the Eureka Skydeck at the top of the 297-metre skyscraper, they will aim to raise at least $350,000 to restore sight to some of the poorest people in the world.

The Eureka Stair Climb is open to anyone over the age of 12, in categories ranging from elite racers and emergency services personnel to fitness fanatics, walkers and first-timers.

Each participant must raise at least $50, which can change the lives of up to two people as The Fred Hollows Foundation can restore sight for as little as $25 in some countries.

Every Eureka Stair Climber who completes the event will receive a finishing medal and prizes will be on offer for the winning times and best dressed by category.
