Story

I am training for an event with 25000spins, a non-profit program that matches an
adventure with a good cause.
 
Beginners and experienced athletes alike are given support in how to train and
fundraise and get to experience an adventure that they wouldn't previously had the
opportunity to enjoy. 
 
In return, I will raise valuable funds that go directly towards helping people in poverty.

Eyes for India

Of the 1.2 billion people living in India, more than 15 million are afflicted with sight-impairing conditions. In many these cases, sight could be restored with one very simple surgery. Dr. Jacob Prabhakar, an ophthalmologist who is medical director of Ruby Nelson Memorial Hospital, heads a team of professionals who conduct screening clinics in rural communities to find candidates for the surgical procedure of removing the defective lens and implanting an intraocular lens. A vehicle with medical staff and basic screening equipment travels to rural villages where clinics have previously been scheduled. There they find candidates for the cataract surgery procedure among the hundreds who are screened. Those selected for the surgery are transported to a local hospital equipped for surgeries, or to the Ruby Nelson Memorial Hospital. Patients are prepared for the surgical procedure by trained personnel. Since the actual cataract surgery takes only 2-3 minutes, patients are prepared and made ready. As many as 300 surgeries can be performed in one day. Following the surgery, patients are kept up to three days for post-operative care and observation before returning to their home village. Greatful patients return to their home villages rejoicing in their renewed gift of sight. They in turn become ambassadors of goodwill to others in their villages
