A Line For Sight

June 2017

For British entrepreneur and computer engineer Chris Mairs, SEE International’s mission of preventing blindness and restoring sight worldwide is deeply personal. Blind since age 18, due to a rare condition called retinitis pigmentosa, Chris raised over £100,000 for eye sight research in 2012 on a 10-day, 1,000-mile tandem bike ride across the U.K.

Five years later, Chris has an even more ambitious trip planned, with an equally impressive goal: cure 60 people of sight loss every day, for 60 consecutive days, at the age of 60. This June, Chris will be biking just over 3,600 miles across North America, to fund 3,600 sight restoring surgeries. Chris and his co-rider will average over 60 miles per day, from Oregon to New Hampshire, on a tandem bike. Their route across North America covers ten states and two countries.

Throughout his journey, Chris will be blogging daily, documenting his ride and educating the public about blindness, interspersed with amusing anecdotes from his ride and his life. To follow Chris’s progress, visit his website www.alineofsight.org.uk or follow us on social media
