Cycle for Sight 2020: A New High!
Cycle for Sight 2020 has raised over $65,000 for vision research at UW-Madison, and also set a participant record (close to 300!) The total includes $9,295 given by early donors to Cycle for Sight in November and December, which was matched by Roger and Lynn Van Vreede of Appleton, WI. The event included four teams with 20 or more participants (Kenzi’s Team, Blind Take Off, Delta Gamma, and an incredible team of 40 riders from the UW School of Medicine & Public Health). Multiple other teams crossed the $1000 mark in donations.
We’re grateful to our sponsors and venues: Opsis Therapeutics, the Princeton Club, Cap Fitness, UW Recreation & Wellbeing, and our prize donors, Culver’s Restaurants & Professor Andrea Mason. And to all of our riders and walkers: Once again, you made it a great event which keeps vision research at UW-Madison moving forward!
Thank you for helping to raise funds for vision research at UW-Madison!
Cycle for Sight 2019 again raises more than $50,000 for vision research!
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!
We welcome donations to support the ride! All gifts support research into blinding diseases at the McPherson ERI.
