Walking for the blind

It’s a shocking fact that every day 100 people in the UK start losing their sight. At Fight for Sight, the UK’s leading charity dedicated to funding pioneering research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease, we believe that sight loss should not be inevitable – and we urgently need funds to continue our work.

That’s why we’re calling on your readers to pull on their walking boots and get fundraising for the 2012 Fight for Sight Carrots NightWalk, which takes place on the night of Friday, September 21. There are just a few weeks left to enter the event, which sees participants take on either a six or 15 mile route through the streets of London. And there’s even a chance for walkers with a fondness for fancy dress to win a prize for ‘Best Dressed Carrot!’

Each person who takes part in the Fight for Sight Carrots NightWalk will be helping researchers find new ways to make sight loss a thing of the past – bringing hope to millions of people worldwide living without sight.
