Glaucoma Australia’s 7 Sights in 7 Days Challenge has kicked off but it’s not too late to get involved.
Part of Glaucoma Australia’s annual Treat Your Eyes campaign (from 6–12 March), eye care professionals and members of the public are invited to participate in this challenge which aims to remind us all that our sight is precious. Around 150,000 Australians have already been diagnosed with glaucoma and another 150,000 don’t even realise they have it and risk going blind
The campaign also aims to raise much-needed funds for early detection programs and critical support services.
To get involved:
- Sign up as an individual, team or workplace and set your fundraising goal.
- Share your fundraising goal and motivation for getting involved in this fun challenge and important cause. Ask everyone you know to support your fundraising efforts.
- Get active in your neighbourhood to Find, Snap and Share your seven sights. Upload your pics with the hashtag #TreatYourEyes and ask everyone to help smash your fundraising goal.
