Cycle for Sight: Building Back Stronger
Register and Join us Today
After two years of virtual events, Cycle for Sight is back in-person, and we couldn’t be more excited to move with you again! Since its inception in 2009, more than 4,000 participants have cycled, walked, ran, swam, kayaked, and more, all in support of Fighting Blindness Canada (FBC). Our incredible participants have raised more than $6 million for essential, sight-saving research.
This year, Cycle for Sight will be taking place across Canada, at locations in Ontario, the West Coast and in Newfoundland/Labrador. And there’s still the option to participate virtually, anywhere, anytime! We invite you to register, fundraise and join us as together, we MOVE research forward!

Anytime, Anywhere, join us virtually and get moving! There are no fundraising minimums for the virtual ride, and registration is free with the code ‘VT RIDER’. If you aren’t able to cycle, then set a different fitness goal. Run, walk, climb stairs, jump rope, try yoga…choose your own athletic pursuit! On June 18th, join us online for the virtual celebration and be part of the excitement. Register today to gain access to the Cycle for Sight Virtual website, where you’ll find tons of ideas for fun activities and physical challenges to get moving for Fighting Blindness Canada.

To date, FBC has contributed over $40 million towards sight-saving research to advance new treatments and cures for blinding eye diseases. This never would have been possible without the support of our incredible fundraisers. It’s thanks to people like YOU that we’re able to fund the work of researchers who are making progress in research to restore vision.
