The third annual Vision Fun Run is taking its mark on Sunday, May 20th, 2018, right here at Bonny Slope Elementary.

The fun, casual, and family-friendly event is organized by Bonny Slope fourth grader, Ella Osborne, and her mom, DeDe Osborne.  Ella was born with a subcapsular cataract and unspecified amblyopia, began patch therapy at just three months old, and started wearing glasses at two years.  Fortunately, these services were provided by her family, but many local children do not have the same opportunity.

The mission of the Vision Fun Run is to raise funds and awareness for children with visual and hearing needs, while encouraging families to be more physically active and involved within their community. All proceeds support The KEX Kids Fund, a non-profit organization established to provide students with free comprehensive eye exams, eyeglasses and/or hearing aids.
