Changing lives – one eye at a time.

The Minnesota Eye Foundation created the Strides 4 Sight 5k Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run in 2014 to increase awareness and funding for The Vision Project, a community outreach program offering free eye care services and surgical treatments to individuals unable to otherwise afford care.

The event is a volunteer effort led by the Minnesota Eye Foundation and Strides 4 Sight Committee, a group of volunteers dedicated to making a difference throughout the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.

Since 2014, the annual fundraising event has contributed over $200,000 to The Vision Project and the Foundation’s mission of enriching the quality of life of individuals through sight-restoring treatments.

MEF is proud to have tremendous partnerships throughout the community that allow us to host the annual Strides 4 Sight fundraiser.  Certified Anesthesia Care has been our leading Gold sponsor for the past two years for this event, and we appreciate their dedication and support of Minnesota Eye Foundation’s philanthropic mission.
