Going the distance for RNIB

A team of runners from dry eye and blepharitis specialists Scope Opthalmics ran 50 miles during National Eye Health Week (24-31 September) to raise awareness and funds for the Royal National Institute for Blind people (RNIB), all while carrying giant inflatable eyeballs.

Scope Opthalmics is supporting RNIB to highlight the effect that blindness or sight-loss can have on an individual’s quality of life and their attempts to remain independent.

Aiming to raise £20,000 for the charity, the two-day venture took the runners from Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford, past iconic central London sites and ended in Trafalgar Square.

Commenting on the optometrist and director of Specsavers, Rajesh Chandigarh said: “We’re excited to see the work that Scope and the organisation do together”.
