My Story…

I have had several close family members struggle with glaucoma and am so excited for the opportunity to contribute to the Glaucoma Research Society of Canada by participating in the 2020 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon! GRSC Board and all of its supporters are a close community devoted to researching all aspects of glaucoma and for providing the latest glaucoma information for those who need it. They cut administrative costs as much as possible in order to cull as much funding into new research as possible and focus is never far off the goal - a cure. I joined GRSC as Administrator in Jan 2020 - just before the pandemic. Starting a new job under such conditions has its share of difficulties. However, the GRSC community couldn't have been more supportive and I am so grateful to work with such an admirable group! I am also grateful to the STWM for providing an opportunity to give back to this wonderful community.


Glaucoma Research Society of Canada uses the money raised through fundraising to fund groundbreaking research into the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of glaucoma – one of the leading cause of blindness in North America. The board is dedicated to limiting administrative costs to ensure as much revenue is put forward for research as possible. Please help us as we work to find a cure!
