Cycle for Sight 2014 Raises Funds for Vision Research!
Cycle for Sight 2014 raised almost $29,000 to support vision research at UW-Madison – more than twice the amount raised in 2013. Support from our major sponsors – UW-Madison Rec Sports, the Shopko Foundation, and the Princeton Club – was integral to the event's success. Participants had a great time at both the SERF and Nat on the UW-Madison campus, and at the Princeton Club West. Pictures from the ride are now online.
Many Cycle for Sight riders, or their friends or relatives, are touched by blindness or vision impairments in their daily lives. They are well aware of the pressing need for further research into these conditions, and rode to support this work. At the Princeton Club, three teams of blind and visually impaired riders – encouraged by the great staff at the Wisconsin Council of the Blind and Visually Impaired – were among our top fundraising teams for vision research. The RCD Annihilators, the #1 fundraising team, raised almost $3000 in donations!
Cycle for Sight will return in 2015...please check back in early fall for the date!
