Fight for Sight

We fund pioneering research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease

Charity Registration No. 1111438

Story

Thanks for visiting my just giving page..

This year I have decided to run the London Marathon.  This will be a personal and physical challenge for me to achieve (not least because I hate running), however my choice to do this is in order to support the excellent work carried out by Fight for Sight.
The UK's leading charity in funding pioneering research to treat eye disease and prevent sight loss.


I am now the 3rd one of us, following in the footsteps of Gill Dalton and Hayley Tolfrey to complete this challenge and raise valuable funding to support this charity. One of our dear friends has been diagnosed with what is currently an incurable condition, Stargardt's Macular Dystrophy. This is a degenerative disease that effects your central vision and can eventually result in blindness. Despite this diagnosis our friend continues to build an incredible career as a DJ seeing her travel all over the world. The strength and determination that she displays is a true inspiration to myself and many others. Some people allow themselves to be defined by the challenges that they face, but she is not one of them..I will be proud of myself to complete the course, but even more proud of the opportunity to play a small part in supporting this cause and my friend.

Please donate what you can to support me on my way. 

Love Lucy.
