2017 Cycle for Sight Prizes
This year's Cycle for Sight ride, which took place on Saturday, March 12th at the Princeton Club West and the Nat and SERF on the UW-Madison campus, raised $35,000 for vision research at the McPherson Eye Research Institute. Our annual indoor cycling fundraiser was a great opportunity to meet and ride with others in the community vested in the fight against blindness.
Last year's top fundraising team, Kenzi's Team, was once again the first place team, raising $6350. Kenzi's Team had participating riders as far away as Kuala Lumpur. The Blind Take Off team came in second, with $5265 raised; they were followed by the Retinal Research Allstars, with $3230. Two dozen other teams participated, with many of them raising over $500 per team. You can find a list of all participating teams on our registration page.
We're very grateful for the support of all our participants and donors, and hope that everyone enjoyed the ride!
