The author of one of this week’s featured articles, James Pickering, is fundraising for sight-saving charities by doing a sponsored Three Peaks Challenge in Yorkshire, UK, on World Sight Day, October 14, 2021. The challenge involves walking 24 miles up three mountains, with an ascent of 5200ft, in under 12 hours. Pickering asked his network of eyecare professionals to nominate worthy charitable foundations and chose Andean Medical Mission, Himalayan Cataract Project, and Sight for All.
You can read more about the challenge here and – if you wish – donate here.

Until next time, Aleksandra Jones
