2020 Stride For Sight “Saving Sight, Changing Lives” is a family and pet friendly 5K run/walk hosted by three partnering community organizations. Our mission in hosting the run/walk is to educate and inspire the community about the Gift of Sight, healthy vision, and to build awareness for the resources that our partners offer.
Our event Unites individuals and organizations whom are supportive of our mission, Remembers local cornea/eye donors who gave the ultimate gift of sight, gives Hope to those who are need of cornea transplants, as well as those whom rely on free vision exams and those in need of the services provided by a guide dog.
This event has it all! Music and entertainment, t-shirts and age group awards for the 5K, breakfast tacos and fruit, team awards and recognition, Guide dogs AND lazy dogs are welcome! Donor memorial quilts will be displayed.
The Partners in Vision Stride for Sight Committee is monitoring all health directives coming from the Bexar County Health Department and statements of officials of the City of San Antonio regarding the current Corona virus situation. Officials have determined that no upcoming Fiesta or associated events will be curtailed or cancelled. They advise that all should heed standard practices that include frequent hand washing or use of hand sanitizing agents. They also advise that those with symptoms that may need addressing should stay away from others and seek appropriate care. Therefore, we have no change in mind to our plans to hold our 5k on March 21.
