RIDE TO COMBAT VISION LOSS!
Cycle for Sight is an annual indoor cycling fundraiser to support research on vision loss, sponsored by the McPherson Eye Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin. The last Cycle for Sight event took place on March 2, 2013.
Vision loss can be devastating. Much of what we learn from the world around us comes through our eyes, and our ability to do many tasks in our daily lives depends on our sight. It is not surprising that people rate their fear of vision loss second only to their fear of cancer.
Thirty-eight million Americans suffer from significant visual impairment. In Wisconsin, estimates indicate that as many as 200,000 residents are blind or visually impaired – nearly 4% of the population – and many more are believed to have eye conditions that may potentially result in permanent vision loss.
Leading scientists believe that the major causes of blindness can be cured within the first decades of the 21st century. McPherson Eye Research Institute investigators are advancing our knowledge of vision loss on numerous fronts.
PRIZES FOR TOP FUNDRAISERS AND RIDERS
Prizes include a Keiser m3 indoor cycle from Direct Fitness Solutions, and a Saris Bones 3-bike rack.
