Thank you to everyone who took part in our virtual Steps for Sight challenge to raise money to support people living with sight loss in Ireland. All our wonderful walkers, joggers and runners raised over €8,500!

When we launched Steps for Sight, we offered a number of great prizes including €50 One4All vouchers for the top times in both challenges. This was our first ever virtual challenge and unfortunately we did face some technical issues. We know many of you experienced problems with the Your Virtual Race app and we’re really sorry this happened.

The technical problems meant that race times were not accurately recorded. Instead of the leaderboard reflecting the fastest participant, it listed the people who finished the challenge first.

So, in the spirit of fairness, we have awarded a €50 voucher to the two participants who topped the leaderboards. We also added two more prizes to the raffle for everyone who took part in Steps for Sight to apologise for the problem.

Congratulations to all our brilliant prize winners. We would like to say a special thank you to our top fundraiser Esther who raised a whopping €1,231! Esther wins a hamper full of goodies for her efforts!

Steps for Sight was proudly empowered by our corporate partner its4women.ie.
