Local Ophthalmologist Riding for IBCF
“I believe in the purpose of ISBVI and the Foundation, assisting those with visual impairments achieve their highest potential in school and life to the greatest possible degree.”
Dr. William Zeh, Indianapolis based Ophthalmologist, is riding the Rainstorm 2017 event, an intensive week of cycling 100 miles a day throughout rural Indiana over July 10-15, and raising financial support and awareness of the Indiana Blind Children’s Foundation through this ride. Dr. Zeh is combining his love of cycling with his desire to do more on behalf of children who are blind or have low vision. All donations made through this page will help further the Foundation’s mission of investing in children with visual impairments.

About the IBCF
The Indiana Blind Children's Foundation helps to close the gaps and provide technology and programs that will level the "academic playing field" for blind and visually impaired students. If you are learning about the Indiana Blind Children’s Foundation for the first time through this page please take a moment to learn about some of our support efforts and impact over this last year:
- Provided the necessary assistive technology such as SMART Board and BrailleNote Touch technology to access information and learn more effectively in the classroom.
- Sponsored the first ever full-week overnight summer camp, Expanding Your Horizons Summer Camp, specifically designed for children with visual impairments.
- Provided orientation and mobility equipment for ISBVI students to have greater independence.
- Created a 3D Print Lab at ISBVI for children to learn the math, science and coding behind 3D printing as well as print 3D objects that are being used as teaching tools in numerous classrooms.
- Supported the first stage of a national two-staged contest known as the Braille Challenge which tests and supports Braille literacy.
- Supported ISBVI off-campus learning opportunities through fifteen field trips throughout the Indianapolis metro area.
- Partnered with Nine13sports, a local non-profit organization, to bring the Kids Riding Bikes program to ISBVI which promoted health, wellness and exercise for elementary, middle and high school students over a four week period.
