Meet Margie, A Cyclist in This Year’s Cycle for Sight

Margie Donovan holds Cycle for Sight 2013 trophy surrounded by members of Team LightHouseMeet Longtime Enchanted Hills supporter and Cycle for Sight Rider Margie Donovan.

Margie Donovan makes Cycle for Sight a priority every year. “I absolutely love the event,” she says. “It is well-organized and I love how Team LightHouse brings visibility to the blind community.”  This year she will ride 25 miles on a tandem bike with her significant other, RC, as her captain. The pair is popular out on the course due to all the work they do with Enchanted Hills Camp.

Margie started off as a camper and has volunteered at family camp for at least twelve years. She and RC started the kayaking program, and she has run support groups for parents and teens. She especially enjoys working with female campers and mentoring them as they grow up. She’s made lifelong connections with many of the campers she’s met at Enchanted Hills.

Two years ago, Margie, along with the rest of Team LightHouse, took the cup for having the largest team at Cycle for Sight. It was an emotional achievement after all her years of service. Last year, she decided to raise money for another rider, one of her campers at Enchanted Hills. One of her favorite things about the ride is “seeing all the campers out on the course and then racing them in little spurts along the way.”

Go, Margie! We can’t wait to see what she does this year.
