Hello! On June 16th I will be taking part in Prevent Blindness Iowa's 2022 Light the Night for Sight Walk.
More than 183,000 school-age children in Iowa, or one in four, have some form of a vision problem. Vision problems in children often go undetected until the damage is irreversible and partial sight is lost. Untreated vision problems may contribute to challenges with reading, falling behind in the classroom, having difficulty with sports and connecting with friends. This event raises funds for Prevent Blindness Iowa's sight saving programs such as free children's vision screening, free eye exams and eyeglasses for low-income children and adults, and free vision screening training for school nurses and health departments.
I am excited to help support the 25th Annual Light the Night for Sight Walk! Please join me in saving sight in Iowa by donating generously to Prevent Blindness Iowa.
