About the Event
Be a superhero to kids and make June 11 a SUPER fun and FANTASTIC day for kids with visual impairments.

It takes over 100 volunteers to make Run for Sight happen each year.

Run for Sight is like a huge family reunion bringing together children and families served, volunteers, donors, and staff past and present. It is also the largest annual fundraiser of the Delta Gamma Center.

Over 70% of DGC's annual budget depends on community support and Run for Sight is vital to funding critical services for kids with visual impairments every year.
