Help Us Find a Cure for Childhood Blindness Through Fitness!
Racing for Research – What is Team VOC?
Team VOC is your opportunity to help The Vision of Children Foundation raise money for research through races and activities you are already involved in or might be inspired to do. As a result of your efforts, your friends and family will learn about VOC, which in turn expands our reach and gains more support for our cause.
Team VOC helps families, communities, teams, and businesses unite through a fun and powerful expression of hope in the fight against childhood blindness and our determination to find a CURE.
Is there a 5K, half marathon, or marathon you run every year? Or have you been hoping for motivation to train and run a race, but haven’t quite found it yet? Team VOC will support your desire for fitness and be your motivation to raise funds and awareness for a worthy cause!
The process is simple. First, identify an event that you are interested in. If Vision of Children IS an official charity of the event, please contact us before registering for the event. If Vision of Children IS NOT an official charity of the event, register then contact us. Next, Team VOC registration; we will create a fundraising page for you individually or for a team of people. We will include your personal story and do our best to motivate you along the way! Whether you run, bike, walk, or play to raise money for VOC, we welcome your participation in this program.
Team VOC supports The Vision of Children Foundation, whose mission is to eradicate childhood blindness and vision disorders. In the last decade, VOC has granted more than $1 Million to research for causes and cures of inherited vision disorders. Until there is a cure, our charity will continue to raise awareness and provide resources for families in need to address the daily challenges of raising a child with vision disorders.
