Domino Run Club goes the extra mile for Cam Sight
June 24, 2021
A team from a Cambridge company has completed a sponsored run to raise funds for a regional charity that supports people across the county who live with low vision and blindness.
Thirteen members of Domino’s Run Club set the challenge to achieve a collective total of more than 100 miles in aid of Cam Sight, with participants able to run in small groups or remotely.
On the day, the team exceeded its target by completing 142 miles, and with match-funding from Domino’s Charities Committee, raised a total of £3,000 for the charity.
A number of supporters were at the finishing line on Jesus Green to cheer the team on and congratulate them on their achievement.
Louise Adcock from the Run Club said: “We were delighted with the commitment of our runners who really pulled out the stops, not only to smash our target but also to raise sponsorship from colleagues, friends and family.
“Cam Sight makes a significant difference to people with low or no vision through providing services that rebuild confidence whilst supporting their users to gain a greater level of independence. They also offer essential emotional support to parents and carers, particularly during the pandemic where access to desperately needed services has been severely affected. Thank you to all those who sponsored us and also Domino which match-funded the total.”
Helping those with visual impairment has also been the focus of a recent collaboration between Domino and Procter and Gamble, creating tactile coding on shampoo and conditioner bottles to improve inclusivity.
