About the Cause
Thank you! Since 2009, cyclists have been hitting the road on their single or tandem bikes, raising more than $4.2 million for the Foundation Fighting Blindness Canada’s – leading charity supporter of vision research having funded over $32 million of groundbreaking vision research at hospitals and universities nationwide.
For 43 years, the Foundation Fighting Blindness has funded research that has lead to sight-saving treatments. The pace of research is accelerating, with exciting clinical trials in many key areas, including stem cells, gene therapy and artificial vision.
Treatments and cures are becoming a reality thanks to events like Cycle for Sight. Read here the Top 10 Discoveries during the 10 Years of Cycle for Sight.
We represent all Canadians facing or living with blinding eye diseases. There are 5.5 million people with major eye diseases causing vision loss in Canada, and the prevalence is expected to increase 30% in the next 10 years. Blindness really could affect you or someone you love, like your parents, children and friends.
