The Australian College of Optometry (ACO) is delighted to announce that long term supporter of NVRI, John Nicola of Optiqueline, is completing an ultra desert run - the Marathon des Sables for the second time in 2016 and has committed his fundraising efforts to the NVRI. The Marathon des Sables (Marathon of the Sands) is a 254km (200 mile) race in the Sahara desert, where competitors have to carry all that they need for the week long journey with them, with the exception of water. 2016 will be the 31st year that the event – known as the toughest footrace on earth - has run. The ACO relies on the generous support of donors to continue its important work and we are extremely grateful to the intrepid John for making this further commitment of support to the NVRI!
