By JESS CANN Mayor Len Brown has bounced back from his past health issues to declare himself ready for the Ports of Auckland Round the Bays event on March 13. Mr Brown, who suffered a heart attack in 2008, has completely changed his routine and lifestyle to prepare for the 8.4km fun run. 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 as he trains for the event. 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 to take part in race. It s in a beauti- ful, unique setting, out in the fresh air and hopefully sunshine. Doing something great for your health and wellbeing, and you will be taking part in an iconic event which brings Aucklanders together. Mr Brown says taking preparing for the Round The Bays has per- sonal 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. And in the beauty of Auckland, 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, Waite- mata Harbour Clean-Up and Fair- fax First Books will benefit from any money raised this year. Entry fee for adults is $15 and $10 for children 16 and under.
