A Review of Last Year’s Tour

Orbis Hong Kong & Macau team, with 23 donors and Orbis staff, traveled to Ethiopia in November 2017. They visited local schools, clinics and eye banks at Arba Minch, to witness life-transforming trachoma surgery and participate into eye health promotions. Also, they completed the 10KM race at Addis Ababa, the country’s capital with Orbis Ireland, Orbis UK, Orbis International team as well as other 44,000 runners. They also successfully raised over HKD500,000 to support Orbis’s commitment to eliminating blinding trachoma and other diseases of the eye in Ethiopia.

Great Ethiopian Run

Established in 2001 by global long-distance running legend, Haile Gebrselassie, the Great Ethiopian Run attracts over 30,000 international athletes to come to Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, and run a 10km race around 10,000 feet above sea level. Despite hailing from all corners of the globe, all runners at the event share a common goal – to make our world a better place! So join the Orbis team and raise funds that will bring the country’s visually impaired people closer to the dream of clear vision with every step you take!
