An estimated 600 million people in the world are blind or vision-impaired simply because they do not have access eye exams and glasses. Marchon invites everyone to make a difference in the fight to prevent blindness by supporting the World Sight Day Challenge. This global event, held annually on the second Thursday in October, is organized by Optometry Giving Sight and focuses on bringing attention to avoidable blindness and vision impairment.
“Marchon is pleased to be involved in the World Sight Day Challenge,” said Claudio Gottardi, President and CEO. “It is an important event to raise awareness and funds in the fight against blindness. Everyone can make a difference by joining in a variety of fund raising events throughout the end of the year.”
Participating in the Challenge is easy and fun! Choose an event in your local area and set up a donation page. Then share your link with family and friends via e-mail, snail mail, Facebook or Twitter. If you’re not up to the challenge, you can support others by
making a donation to Team Marchon.
Practices can also participate by donating a percentage of their eye exam fees or other sales during the month of October, and by inviting patients to make a donation. Learn more ways that you and others can help during World Sight Day by watching this video.
