With all the charity rides out there, why am I participating in Cycle for Sight? Because I am inspired by other riders, some who are partially-sighted, who have decided to take action and not sit idly around waiting for something to happen. Because I believe that the research funded by the Foundation Fighting Blindness will lead to cures for degenerative blindness. Because vision is something that is taken for granted and having an eye disease is not considered life threatening.
The journey that I will be embarking on with Cycle for Sight is only a small trek compared to those who live with vision loss every day. Help me provide hope by making a donation today. I sincerely thank you in advance for any contribution you can make to my ride and the Foundation!
For the fifth year now, I'm riding on a tandem bike with Dr. Ginny Duff. My eyesight is much better than her's, so I'm riding on the front (the "Captain") with Ginny on the rear (the "Stoker"). This doesn't mean I get to put my feet up! It takes two to peddle a tandem.
There are promising treatments for degenerative blindness being developed now. Please help support this research by donating what you can.
