Team Captain Spotlight:

Christina Henderson, Team Captain of Hendo's Heroes

Hendo's Heroes have consistently been one of the top fundraising teams year-over-year. Thanks to Christina's leadership as their Team Captain, Hendo's Heroes have raised a total of more than $228,000 for vision research!

With no previous history of disease in her family, two of Christina's children, Ava and Chase, have been diagnosed with Stargardt disease, a degenerative retinal condition that is causing them to lose their vision. Christina shares: "My hope is that my children and others undergoing vision loss will find a cure. I believe that we're close to a cure for blindness and your support of Cycle for Sight and Fighting Blindness Canada will help get us there."
