One Small Step for Sight

Prevent Blindness Texas’s three regions are gearing up for some family-friendly fun! Each region is hosting its very own walk for sight, at three very different venues, at three different times of day, but with one common goal—to raise money to help end preventable blindness.

The Southeast Region’s 2nd Annual Eye Stroll for Vision is a noncompetitive walk held at the Houston Zoo on Saturday, November 10, 2012. The entire morning is filled with fun activities for people of all ages. The gates will open at 7 a.m. where strollers will be able to start their morning watching the animals wake up. As the animals begin eating breakfast and taking their baths, everyone can begin their leisurely stroll through the zoo. The Family Fun Center will also be open from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. where the strollers can enjoy refreshments, entertainment, face painting, costumed characters and sponsor booths. And since you’ll already be at the zoo, why not enjoy the rest of the day at the zoo for free! There will also be awesome prizes for everyone who raises money for the event! Be a part of it! To register, form a team, join an existing team, donate to a team, become a sponsor or to simply donate to the event, please visit or contact Irene Baird at 713-526-2559 X 105.

The North Region’s Inaugural Light the Night for Sight 5K Family Fun Walk will be on November 30, 2012 at the Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Become a part of a new tradition! Get a group together, whether it’s family, friends, neighbors or coworkers and start raising pledges to save sight. To register, form, join or donate to a team, or to simply donate to the event, please visit or you may contact Stephanie Melson at

The Southwest Region’s Light the Night for Sight will be held at SeaWorld on December 7, 2012 in San Antonio. Light the Night for Sight has two route options—a 5K for participants who want to challenge themselves, and a 1-mile route for families and young kids. Runners will be chipped and timed, so either create or join a family, organization or corporate team today, or sign up as an individual! Runner online registration will close at noon on November 30th, and all online registration will close at noon on December 3rd, so sign up today! To register as or donate to an individual or a team, or to simply donate to the event, please visit or contact Audra Atzger at

These events are held all across the state of Texas so join the fun, come to an event and help us save the sight of thousands of Texans!
