Promotional graphic for Steps 4 Sight

Make your steps count this July and join our virtual challenge Steps for Sight. We’re calling people of all ages and abilities to walk, wheel or run to support the quarter of a million people living with sight loss in Ireland.

We are the only Irish charity funding research into treatments for sight loss. The investment in research is working. Research is saving sight.

With your support, we can continue to fund innovative research and give people, both young and old, hope for the future.

Choose a Steps for Sight challenge to suit you or give both a go! It costs just €20 to take part and your ticket covers both challenges.

Everyone who takes part will be entered into a raffle for a €100 One4All voucher.

Steps for Sight Marathon

Walk, wheel or run a marathon (42km/26 miles) in the month of July! It’s up to you how you reach your target – in one day, one week or spread out throughout the month. A little bit everyday adds up! Or why not sign up a friend and split the distance between you – a virtual relay race! Don’t forget to keep us updated on social media!

Steps for Sight 10km Race Day

On Saturday 31 July join us for our Steps for Sight 10km Race Day. Walk, wheel or run 10km in your locality, record your time on an app (such as Strava or MapMyRun) and share it with us on social media! If you’re not on social media, no problem – simply email us the screenshot of your 10km.

The fastest time on the day will win a €100 One4All voucher!

Fundraising

Steps for Sight is our main fundraising event this year – every cent raised will support our mission to cure blindness and support people living with sight loss. If you’re taking part please consider setting up a fundraiser so your friends and family can support your challenge! Set up a Facebook fundraiser or a JustGiving page and share it widely.

The top fundraiser will win a €100 All4One voucher!

So start stretching today and get ready to step up for sight loss in July!

Steps for Sight is proudly sponsored by our corporate partner its4women.
