Registration is open for Cycle for Sight 2023, the McPherson Eye Research Institute’s annual fundraiser.  In 2023, you – either as an individual or with your team – can:

  • Sign up to join us at the Princeton Club West on Saturday, March 25th for a kickoff spinning session, as in pre-COVID years, or…
  • Sign up to exercise, alone or with your team, at a team walk, run, or cycling event that YOU plan any time through April 30th, 2023!

Many of our teams started wonderful outdoor community-based events in the past two years, and we encourage those teams to continue these events, which brought new participants, including many walkers, into the Cycle for Sight fold.

Other teams asked for the return of the spinning session challenge, and we are glad to partner once again with the Princeton Club!  Princeton Club participants are encouraged to register early, as space is limited (4 sessions, 8 AM to 12 noon, with 35 available spinning bikes per session).  You can also sign up to walk the track at the Princeton Club on that day.

As always, you can participate (or donate!) from anywhere in the world!  You can also help by liking and sharing Cycle for Sight on Facebook.

Cycle for Sight supports the Kenzi Valentyn Vision Research Awards, whose Fall 2022 recipients were announced recently.  Also, check out our 2022 annual report to read about McPherson ERI research highlights from the past year.

We’re very grateful to our sponsors, Opsis Therapeutics and the Princeton Club!

Please join our 12th annual Cycle for Sight in 2023, and thank you for your dedication to vision research!

Thank you for making Cycle for Sight 2022 a success!

The McPherson ERI’s annual research fundraiser was once again driven by teams that exercised outdoors – walking, running, and cycling for sight around the state and the country. Kenzi’s Team led a walk around the Wisconsin State Capitol on Sunday, May 1st; the team reached a new high in fundraising this year. Thank you to all who participated, donated, and sponsored the event! Check out the pictures!
