Richard Harlow's Fight For Sight

Richard Harlow's Fight For Sight

Richard Harlow is blind. And there exists an exceedingly simple way to fix that. He needs to take a pill. The pill in question is a drug therapy to restore function to his optic nerve, which has been ravaged by a rare disease. Due to this rarity, the treatment is not covered by BC's medical plan. Last night several members of Island Top Team attended Richard Harlow's Fight For Sight Night fundraiser and donated generously to this immensely worthy cause. If you would like to do the same, please visit ... Richard is very close to his goal, please help put him over the top! 

Thanks to Island Top Team members Dwayne, Sean, Gary and Paul for their generous support! Special thanks to Cam for introducing us to Richard, thereby bringing some wonderful inspiration to the team, and to James for bidding so enthusiastically to win auctions for several pieces of Richard Harlow's artwork, one of which he is kindly donating to be displayed in our new training space. Not that we didn't already know it, but our students are an amazing bunch of people, thanks guys, you rule!
