Meet our 2020
Youth Ambassador George!


Out of an abundance of caution Prevent Blindness Iowa has made the decision to change the 23rd annual Light the Night for Sight walk from an in-person event to a VIRTUAL WALK. A Virtual Walk allows you to support the mission of Prevent Blindness Iowa how you choose! It's easy to do:

1. Sign up for the event

2. Ask your friends and family to support you in this virtual event by making a donation to Prevent Blindness Iowa

3. Plan to walk on your own - around your yard, around your neighborhood, on a local trail or even on your treadmill! Take a video or a picture and share it with Prevent Blindness Iowa and your fellow walkers! Print the virtual walk sign and take a picture or video with it! Email it to [email protected] or share it on our Facebook page!

4. Join us virtually for an online event at 7pm on Thursday, June 18th. A link will be emailed to all registered participants!

So make plans to join us -Virtually- for the 23rd Annual Light the Night walk to celebrate the gift of sight and safe summer celebrations! Funds raised support our programs including children’s vision screening and vision screening trainings which strive to remove poor vision as a barrier to a child’s education.

There is no entry fee to participate, however walkers are encouraged to collect pledges. $100 in pledges will earn you a glow-in-the-dark t-shirt. 

Help us save sight in Iowa by signing up today for the 23rd Annual Light the Night for Sight!


Thank you to all of our sponsors!
