Event Info:

Thank you for being a part of Roar Through Ybor,
the 16th annual Race for Sight

Roar Through Ybor is a signature FUNraising 5K race and one mile fun walk in historic Ybor City that benefits Lions Eye Institute Foundation. It is an opportunity for individuals in our community who share our passion to come together to help provide hope, possibilities and solutions for people who are blind or visually impaired by raising money while having fun!

This year we are featuring a 'Run from Home' category where individuals, teams and clubs who can't make it to Ybor City can still participate in the race.

Prior to the event, registered runners, walkers and those participating from Home will design their own webpages through this Roar Through Ybor website in order to garner support from their family and friends to fund raise on behalf of Lions Eye Institute Foundation.

Then, on April 1st, runners and walkers will gather at Centennial Park for an exciting morning of racing, music, and fun. Medals and prizes will be awarded to the race category winners and for the most money raised.
