Did you know that more than 2.7 million people in the United States over age 40 have glaucoma? The National Eye Institute projects this number will reach 4.2 million by 2030, a 58 percent increase.
Glaucoma is called “the sneak thief of sight” since there are no symptoms and once vision is lost, it’s permanent. As much as 40% of vision can be lost without a person noticing. (www.glaucoma.org)
To help raise awareness we are running for the EYEBALLS! (at least 20% of every registration) to the Glaucoma Research Foundation.
For participating in this event you will get a fun, 3.5 inch EYEBALL RUN finishers medal!
What: This is a virtual race. You choose to complete a 5K, 10K, Half or Full Marathon. You complete your race on your own and submit your time to us. Then we ship your medal directly to you.
When: Complete your race any time during 2016.
Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).
Why: To raise awareness for Glaucoma, which is the second leading cause of blindness.
COST: $15, which includes your medal, a custom bib and shipping. Plus, at least 20% of every entry will be donated to Glaucoma Research Foundation (typically about $5). *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.
