Moorfields’ Eye to Eye sponsored walk – 2016

Moorfields Eye to Eye sponsored walk - 2016

Moorfields Eye Hospital by taking part in Eye to Eye,

a sponsored walk raising money and awareness for the hospital and its sight-saving work.
With just two months to go until the big day, we hope you’ll sign up to take part and encourage your friends, colleagues and family to join you too.
The walk takes place on Sunday 13th March 2016, with 4 and 14 mile routes,starting at Moorfields Eye Hospital and finishing at the London Eye, ‘Eye to Eye’.

This is the second year Eye to Eye has taken place. In 2015, over 500 people signed up to raise £106,000 for Moorfields and the feedback from the event was fantastic.

Sign up for Eye to Eye 2016 and help make it another event to remember for Moorfields.
You can even choose which research area you’d like your fundraising to go to – including research into glaucoma, retinal eye disease, genetic eye diseases, age-related macular degeneration or wherever the need is considered greatest.

And if this wasn’t enough, everyone who registers in January will go into a prize draw to win a voucher for a meal for 4 at restaurant Ceviche.

Registration costs just £18 for the 14 mile route and only £12 for the shorter distance. There is no minimum sponsorship required to take part but we hope you will raise as much as you can! Children under 12 go free with every adult place on the four mile route.

Register here for the 14 mile route.
Register here for the 4 mile route.
