Run For Sight


About

Run for Sight is an annual charity 5km Blindfold Run jointly organized by Persatuan Glaucoma Malaysia and Save Ones Sight Missions, held in conjunction with World Glaucoma Week in March every year.

Mission

The 2 main objectives of Run for Sight are to:

  1. Increase the awareness of glaucoma among Malaysians
  2. Raise funds for the many works both the organizations are involved in

Overview and Description

The Run promises to be a fun filled Blindfolded Run over 5 km. Challenges of Mobility in Darkness is the message that the organizers hopes to loudly bring forth to all Malaysians to not take their precious God-given good eyesight for granted. Glaucoma can darken the patients’ psychology through anguish about the future. It can also darken the life of the patients’ family through fear for their loved ones.

The organizers earnestly pray and hope that through this Blindfolded Run Experience, many will not ever take their eye sight for granted and to regularly go for eye health screenings.
