NCBI’s mission is to enable people who are blind and vision impaired to overcome the barriers that impede their independence and participation in society.

On the 8th of October, Peter Ryan will embark on his first-ever ultra-endurance run, with an aim to raise €100,000 in aid of NCBI to help us fund our first-ever Vision Van.

A true test of true grit and determination, Peter will run a distance of 586km in 5 days and cross the finish line on World Sight Day, the 12th of October.

The Vision Van will travel nationwide, providing information, awareness, and support services for sight loss and common eye conditions free at the point of delivery, right to the heart of local communities. Donating today will help us Mobilise eye care throughout Ireland. Saving the sight of those living in communities throughout the country.
