A VAO resolution

Take on a new challenge this year with VAO and support the eye health needs of others in the process

VAO three peaks challenge

A New Year marks the start of new resolutions for many. In February, Vision Aid Overseas (VAO) is reminding people that it is not too late to turn over a new leaf.

The charity has issued a call informing people about the broad range of charity events it hosts, which are designed to challenge people while also raise funds for a worthy cause.

From the Vitality 10k and the London Marathon, to Ride London and a range of trek and trail events, the charity is confident that it has something for everyone, be it running, rambling or cycling. 

Fundraising officer for VAO, Demi Rennie, told OT: “Challenge events are one of the best ways you can really help some of the world’s poorest people access life changing eye care and glasses whilst also improving your own health.

“Whether you are a cyclist, runner or trekker, we have an event that you can take part in 2017 to get fit and make a difference to the lives of children and adults in Africa who can’t see properly simply because they need glasses.”
