HONG KONG, Jan. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Team registration is now open for the 9th Annual Goodman Magic Mile Ramp Run, which will be held on Sunday, 22 March 2020 at Goodman Group's flagship Goodman Interlink property in Tsing Yi, Hong Kong. Team fundraising is also open with all funds raised going towards a key eye care project run by The Fred Hollows Foundation in Guangxi, China.

This year's theme is Greatness is in the Extra Mile, which embodies Goodman Group's purpose of Making Space for Greatness. 

The Group, through its charitable arm the Goodman Foundation, is proud to once again partner with The Fred Hollows Foundation. The funds raised will support a key eye health project in Guangxi, China, to provide eye care screening for 130,000 people, cataract surgery for over 3,500 patients, and eye care training for 160 medical staff.

The project will be undertaken in conjunction with The Fred Hollows Foundation's global initiative, She Sees, which aims to increase access to eye care services among women who traditionally do not have the ease of access to proper eye healthcare in many countries. Women account for a significantly higher proportion of people globally living with visual impairment.

In addition to the classic mile-long race up Goodman Interlink's 15-floor cargo ramp and the popular blindfolded race, this year's event will embrace the spirit of the 2020 Olympic Games with the addition of two relays, a Magic Mile Team Relay Race for teams of four, and a Tall 'n Small parents' and children's relay. Full details of the races are available in the table below.

To register for the event and start fundraising, please visit the Goodman Magic Mile Ramp Run website goodman.com/magicmile.
