Light the Night for Sight is an evening walk celebrating the gift of sight and emphasizing safe summer celebrations. The walk is designed to raise awareness about the dangers of consumer fireworks, educate the public on the importance of sports eye safety and UV protection and provide information on how to preserve sight.

Walkers will enjoy a stroll on the sidewalks and trails around the Johnston Library. There is no entry fee to participate, however walkers are encouraged to collect pledges. $100 in pledges will earn you a glow-in-the-dark t-shirt.
