EURETINA Race raises €3,570

On Saturday 9th September 120 runners took part in the 5km Retina Race in aid of Orbis, which this year was held in the vibrant city of Barcelona, raising an incredible €3,570 towards our sight saving work.

The fun run is organised by our longstanding partner EURETINA and coincides with their annual ophthalmic conference. Novartis have also kindly sponsored the event over the years allowing for 100% of the participants’ €30 registration fees to be donated towards fighting blindness, so we can continue giving the gift of sight to millions of children and adults across the globe.

We were delight­ed to be the ben­e­fi­cia­ry char­i­ty of the Reti­na Race for the sixth year in a row! It’s a fan­tas­tic event and a great way to bring the del­e­gates togeth­er out­side of the con­fer­ence. We are grate­ful for the sup­port from EURETI­NA in organ­is­ing the entire run on our behalf and to Novar­tis for their spon­sor­ship, allow­ing for all reg­is­tra­tion fees to be donat­ed towards our sight sav­ing work. Thank you to all involved and we look for­ward to next year!
