Cycle for Sight 2017 Draws 250 Participants!

McPherson ERI’s 2017 fundraiser raised over $53,000 for research

Cycle for Sight 2017 brought 250 participants to the SERF, Nat, and Princeton Club West on Saturday,  March 11th.  Riders hopped on spinning bikes to raise funds for vision research at UW-Madison.

Teams that participated in previous years – Kenzi’s Team, Blind Take Off, Out of Sight, the Retinal Research Allstars, Team Tiradani, and others – were back, along with new teams.  Teams raised over $53,000 in gifts for vision research this year!  We will announce a date for Cycle for Sight 2018 soon, so stay tuned.
