My Message

Dear Friends,

On Saturday June 19, I will be peddling over 80 km in support of Fighting Blindness Canada (FBC) and sight saving research. I will also be riding with a heavy heart in memory of our dear friend, Cycle for Sight teammate and stoic FBC superstar Lorna Rosenstein who passed away last year.

Lorna was a dear friend and a personal mentor to me. She was a true leader in every sense of the word. Lorna served on the Board of Directors of Fighting Blindness Canada from 1998 to 2016 and remained an active volunteer for FBC's Thank-You Program. She also represented Canada on the Management Committee of Retina International for 8 years. 

Her passionate advocacy for the cause was relentless; she never stopped fighting even well after having lost her vision to RP. 

With Lorna’s unwavering “can-do” positive spirit in mind, and as proud members of our duly named team “Lorna’s Legacy Riders” we are determined to power ahead despite these challenging Covid times.  Even though we can’t be physically together as part of a great big Cycle for Sight in-person event this year, our team will still be riding with a shared sense of purpose and determination, knowing that Fighting Blindness Canada needs our help more than ever before to maintain the hard won momentum that we have fought so hard for.

Please consider making a donation on my personal fundraising page and help us keep the hope for a brighter future alive. Every dollar raised gets us that much closer to the day when blinding eye diseases can be cured.

Thank you for your support!

Michael Ovens, Co-Founder, Cycle for Sight
