What is the Eye Run?

The Eye Run is an event for the entire family. Eye health is important to everyone, yet many of us rarely think about what we can do to protect our vision. Participants and guests will learn about eye health, safety, and other facts related to vision. Why? The sight you save may be your own! Funds raised will support services and programs provided by Christian Record Service for the Blind.

Additionally, the Eye Run welcomes participation from local businesses, agencies, and organizations that work with and support people who are blind. Many of these groups will have information at event-day booths and can answer questions regarding support services for friends or family members who are learning to live with blindness.
