Thank you for going the distance for DGCkids!


On what turned out to be a beautiful May morning, DGCkids hosted the 25th Annual Run for Sight. An astounding 1,100 people participated in the event, raising over $126,000 for programs and services provided by DGCkids.

Many thanks to all who contributed time, energy and resources to make this event a great success!  Special thanks to the Run for Sight committee chaired by Lucas and Jenn Kendall, the 60 participating family and community teams, event emcee-Kevin Steincross, our race management company- Big River by Tom Eckelman, and all of the 2017 Run for Sight sponsors.
