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!
