Champion of Sight

Recognizing and celebrating the extraordinary among us.

Celebrating Champions of Sight

In 2020, Saving Sight established the Champion of Sight Award to recognize our partners who exhibit an extraordinary dedication in advocating and assisting in making eye donation possible. Champions of Sight show compassion, resilience and a love for what they do each and every day. They demonstrate an outstanding passion for supporting the eye donation process and help Saving Sight achieve excellence in caring for donors, their families and the eventual recipients of the gift of sight. Champions of Sight are distinguished advocates of donation within their professions. Together, with our Champions, we truly change lives by saving sight!
