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.
