100K Your Way

My target 100 kms

I'm doing 100K Your Way

It is estimated that over 575,000 people are blind or vision impaired living in Australia, with over 70% over the age of 65 and an estimated 66,000 people who are blind. However, despite the fact that blindness and vision impairment affect a significant proportion of Australia’s population, no comprehensive data exists on the provision of blindness and low vision services at a national level.

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, with an estimated 300,00 Australians have glaucoma with half of these not knowing that they have it. One in 8 people over the age of 80 have glaucoma. By the age of 40, it is estimated that 1 in 200 have this disease, including pigmentary glaucoma, which can be diagnosed between the ages of 20 to 50.

The risk is lower under the age of 40 however it is still possible to get. At the age of 33 i was diagnosed with pigmentary glaucoma and was told that it was less than a 5% chance of people my age being diagnosed with it. 

Not many people know this, but I have glaucoma and for people my age it is not common.

I’m taking on the 100K Your Way challenge! We often take exercise for granted, but for someone who is blind or has low vision a walk or a run isn’t always easy. That’s why, to help raise funds to support people who are blind or have low vision stay active and independent, I'll be running or walking 100K over the month of April. 

Please DONATE to my page now by clicking the DONATE button. Together, we can help raise funds to support people who are blind or have low vision keep independently mobile. 

Thanks so much for your support.
