THANK YOU CALGARY - DOUBLE THE FUNDRAISING, DOUBLE THE FUN!

What a day!  On behalf of everyone at Orbis, THANK YOU for participating in this year's PLANE PULL FOR SIGHT CALGARY! We're so glad that you could join us on the tarmac this year.

Despite the on-and-off rain and cool temperatures, it was a great day. It was so encouraging to see so many people out on the tarmac supporting Orbis and the fight to end avoidable blindness.

With your generous, caring and enthusiastic support, the 2018 Orbis Canada Plane Pull for Sight Calgary raised over $37,800, more than doubling our total from last year!
