Mayor Len Brown has bounced back from his past health issues to declare himself ready for the Ports of Auckland Round the Bays on March 13. Mr Brown, who suffered a heart attack in 2008, has completely changed his routine and lifestyle to prepare for the annual 8.4km fun run and walk. My heart attack gave me a new outlook on life, he says. Healthy food and regular exer- cise have now become an integral part of my daily life. I am fighting fit and healthy. The mayor has been hitting the pavement almost every day as part of a regular fitness routine. Mr Brown will tackle the trek with a brisk and steady walking pace with more than 40,000 like- minded people. He urges more Aucklanders need to take part in race. It s in a beautiful, unique set- ting, out in the fresh air and hope- fully sunshine. Doing something great for your health and well- being, and you will be taking part in an iconic event which brings Auck- landers together. Mr Brown says preparing for Round the Bays has personal benefits as well. Exercise is great for your ongoing health and fitness and it s also great way to clear the mind and manage stress levels. It s great for the soul too. Money raised from the 2010 event was donated to three charitable trusts. One recipient was the Ronald McDonald House, which provides shelter and support for families up and down the country. Kidney Kids, Koru Care, Waitemata Harbour Clean-Up and Fairfax First Books will also benefit from money raised this year. The entry fee for adults is $15 and $10 for children 16 and under.
