Whether you looking to start a New Year’s resolution, get fitter or just to do something meaningful ‘Go for Glasses’ is the answer.

2020 is the year of vision and with your support we want to raise £20,000, to help the 1.2 billion people worldwide who cannot see properly simply because they need glasses.

Go for Glasses is our virtual challenge, which means you can take part anywhere! The challenge runs for three months, ending on March 31st. Take part as an individual or a team, and choose your activity, distance and fundraising target.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up today and go, go, go for glasses!
