|More than 300 riders came out for last weekend's Bike for Sight event in Downtown Omaha. The event will support a UNMC team's ophthalmology relief effort in Haiti.|
More than $8,600 was raised during Bike for Sight last weekend in downtown Omaha. Proceeds from the charity bike ride, hosted by UNMC's International Division of Ophthalmology, go to support a vision restoring cataract camp in Cap-Haitian, Haiti in May. In all, 330 riders participated in the event, which raised enough money to support 374 sight-restoring surgeries in Cap-Haitian. Watch a video from the event.
