Oh, what sights we'll see!
Walk. Run. Paddle. Ride. Swim. However you like to move, join the ‘7 Sights Challenge’ to help save the sight of more Australians. By taking part you’ll be raising awareness, supporting more patients and their families and funding the ground-breaking research that is needed to improve treatment outcomes and save sight.
This March, challenge yourself to Find, Snap and Share 7 sights to help end glaucoma blindness.
How it works
Sign up as an individual or team, set your fundraising goal and let others know you are on a mission to save sight. Tell your friends to join too!
Share your fundraising goal and motivation for getting involved in this fun challenge. Ask everyone you know to support your incredible efforts.
3. Find, Snap and Share
Challenge yourself to discover and snap this year's seven sights. Share your progress and pics and ask your friends to help you smash your fundraising goal!
The 7 Sights Challenge is all about appreciating our precious peepers. Look at what you can see! How amazing is that? Imagine not seeing that ever again, because glaucoma stole your sight.
Glaucoma affects 1 in 50 Australians. It is the leading cause of preventable yet irreversible vision loss and blindness and can have profound implications on so many aspects of life.
Your fundraising efforts will go towards early detection programs, deliver better treatment outcomes and provide much needed mental health and practical support services.
We are calling on you to join the mission to take glaucoma out of the picture. Because every snap taken and every sight shared reminds us how precious our eyesight really is.
Introducing the 7 sights!
Here are this year's seven sight themes to inspire our Sight Saving Champions. So, get out and get active to Find, Snap and Share your visual gems!

The Structures Sight
The Selfie Sight

I still have to take very good care of my eyes – but it means I appreciate the beauty in everything. That’s a joy that I’d love to share with you through this challenge!

We welcome this wonderful campaign, which asks Australians to reflect on the wonders of sight and reminds people not to take their eye health for granted.

The 7 Sights Challenge is a potent reminder that your sight enables you to do things you may take for granted, such as going for a run, riding a bike, snapping a photo or simply seeing your loved ones.
