​​Sunrise Lions Service Projects and Fund Raisers

Early Childhood Vision Screening-- A joint project with the Lions of SE Wyoming (Cheyenne Frontier and Noon Lions, Laramie and Laramie Plains Lions and the Pine Bluffs Lions. Preschool children are screened using a special device called a PediaVision Screener. This device screens for a variety of potential early childhood vision problems such as amblyopia. The Screener is connected to a computer that prints a report indicating "Pass" or "Refer." The report includes variety of technical measurements that are meaningful to eye care professionals who see the children who are referred. This important project helps identify problems that may be corrected in early childhood and that, if undetected until later, are incurable. The new equipment saves time getting the referral in the hands of the parent and the time of the eye care professional it takes to review the report and examine the child.

Miniature Train - The Cheyenne Sunrise Lions run our miniature street train and provide free rides to children in a variety of events. Each year over 1400 children and parents received a free ride on the train at Super Day in Lions Park (4th Saturday in June). The train also runs in all four Frontier Days Parades (Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). It also makes occasional appearances in the State Fair Parade in August in Douglas and in the Jubilee Days parade in Laramie in early July. It has also become a tradition to appear in Cheyenne Depot Days in June.

Ride for Sight -- The annual Ride for Sight (begun in 1992) is our major fund raiser for the year. This is also a community service, providing a fun family event that encourages physical fitness. August 2, 2020 is the date for our next 100 mile supported bike ride. Our major co-sponsor is The Cheyenne Eye Clinic. We provide five rest stops for a fifty mile (riders go out and back for 100 miles) route through the prairie of southeast Wyoming. As many as 200 riders from all over the state and the region participate in this event. Funds from riders and other sponsors provide support for a variety of programs:    

   Early Childhood Vision Screening  

   Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank

   Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute Foundation

   Allen H. Stewart Lions Camp and Summer School for Vision Impaired Youth

   Lions Clubs International Foundation

Villains for Vision -- Begun in 2019, this is planned to be an annual event. Prisoners commit to arranging "bail" to be released from jail. Proceeds from the event are donated to the Cheyenne Lions Clubs Vision Program that purchases exams and glasses for low income residents of Cheyenne.
