Join ophthalmologists, eye bankers, corneal transplant recipients, and donor family members to support EBAA’s mission to restore sight through cornea donation and transplantation. Sponsored by Bausch + Lomb, EBAA is once again hosting our annual Run for Vision virtually from your home any time in November.
Virtual 5K Event
Simply complete a 5K run any time during the month of November and submit your time to this website. Run more than once and submit all your times; we'll count your best time, and you'll only pay one entry fee. All virtual runners will receive the same race shirt and bib, along with printable certificate of completion. If you'd prefer to support EBAA without actually running, that's OK too. Once you’ve registered, you don't need to submit a time, or even get off the couch. Your packet will include the shirt and bib, mailed directly to your home. What you tell your friends and family is up to you!
Regardless of how you participate, your entire contribution will help EBAA restore sight to blind and visually-impaired individuals in the U.S. and around the world through cornea transplantation and research. That’s because a generous grant from Bausch + Lomb underwrites all our race expenses, so 100% of your registration fee comes directly to us.
Finally, if you're not already registered as an eye, organ and tissue donor, please give the gift of sight and life today!

Virtual 5K Run/Walk - IndividualEBAA has hosted the Run for Vision for over 30 years, and we're not letting the coronavirus stop us this year. If we can't run together, we will run individually, because each stride supports EBAA's mission to restore sight to those blinded or visually impaired due to cornea disease or injury. Since our founding in 1961 as the world's first association for the donation of human tissue, EBAA-member eye banks have provided over 2 million corneas for sight-restoring transplants, plus hundreds of thousands more for research and training purposes. Each of those corneas helped to transform a life. This year's Run for Vision is held in conjunction with Eye Donation Month, our annual commemoration of the work performed by eye banks and our recovery, placement and transplantation partners. To make this feel as much like a traditional Run for Vision as possible, we ask that you send us photos of yourself running in your race shirt; we'll post these to the race site and to our social media to celebrate your participation in this annual event.Activity Starts: 11/1/2021 00:00 - Activity Ends: 11/30/2021 23:59Registration opens : 8/18/2021 08:00Activity type: Virtual raceRequires Date of BirthGiveaway(s): Short Sleeved Runner's Shirt
