The Summer of 2017 has been spectacular and it's not even close to being over! September 2nd marks 12 years that Shoreline Vision has been putting on the Run for Sight which is a 5k run or walk, however you choose and the focus of the event is to benefit those who need a hand when it comes to the car of their eyes. Shoreline Vision is a remarkable group of physicians. As they have grown and the services they offer expanded, they have also kept sight on the fact that being a good community steward is important and that lending a hand to an organization like the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABVI) is not only the right thing to do, it's good business and a caring approach to help others in the profession of eye care.
100% of the proceeds of the Run for Sight go to benefit the ABVI. ABVI goes beyond just vision care too. They help people who are learning to cope with vision loss with support groups, clinics, daily living skills, vision aids and appliances, youth programs and counselling. It's got to be quite a frightening thing to be in the beginning stages of vision loss and ABVI is there to support those who need the helping hand. It's a remarkable outreach and Shoreline Vision is proud to support their work.
Back to the run. Are you up for a competitive chipped 5k? Maybe you'd like to enjoy the scenic beauty of Pere Marquette? Maybe it's a first or maybe it's the run you wrap up the Summer with. No matter what you like, be a part of a fun day with a great purpose and an amazing way to ease into Fall on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Shawn Cook joined me to talk about the event from the Shoreline Vision Surgical Center. Take a listen to our talk about the event!
It's an affordale run/walk and it's something everyone can get behind to support those who are experiencing vision loss. It's also a chance to invite friends and family out from all over the area to come and enjoy a cool September morninig on the shores of our beautiful lake! If you'd like to reserve your spot, please do before the August 14th deadline and save yourself a few bucks! Hats off to Shoreline Vision for their commitment to Muskegon and all of our vision.
