Cycle for Sight was held on March 9th this year, and drew 200+ people to three venues on the coldest Cycle for Sight day yet.  The indoor cycling event brings in funds for vision research at UW-Madison.  Thank you to all of our teams and donors for making the ride, once again, a great success.  More pictures are on the way, and don’t forget – you can still donate!

In 2018, 260 participants reached a new Cycle for Sight high

260 people participated this year, raising more than $55,000 for vision research at the McPherson ERI — a new record for the ride.

Kenzi’s Team was once again our top fundraising team in 2018, riding in honor of Kenzi Valentyn.  The 2018 ride at the Princeton Club was dedicated to Kenzi.

We are grateful for everyone who participated, and to our wonderful sponsors (see below).  Thank you!
