Meet our 2021
Youth Ambassador George!


We are so excited to hold the 24th Annual Light the Night for Sight walk in person again this year and we hope you can join us! It's easy to do:

1. Sign up for the event

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

3. Join us at Johnston Green Days at Terra Park on Thursday, June 17th. Plan to walk approximately 2 miles on the beautiful trails around Terra Park! If you choose not to attend the event in person we encourage you to participate virtually by signing up and walking on your own around your yard or neighborhood! Send us a picture or video of your walk!

4. Stay and enjoy all the outdoor fun of Johnston Green Days including carnival rides, food tents, beverage garden and entertainment!

Make plans to join us for the 24th Annual Light the Night walk to celebrate the gift of sight and safe summer celebrations! Funds raised support our programs including free 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 registering today for the 24th Annual Light the Night for Sight!


Thank you to all of our sponsors!
