Winner of B-Eye-Cycle Drawing Contest
Patients voted Karina as the proud winner of a dazzling blue bike + helmet from the South Texas Eye Institute B-EYE-Cycle drawing contest. The drawing contest for the YMCA of Greater San Antonio after school program guidelines were to combine the concept of a bicycle and an eye. This contest occurred during the month of October as part of promoting bicycle eye safety and helmet awareness.
We also partnered with Síclovía Downtown San Antonio where we handed out over a 100 helmets and had bikers take a helmet B-eye-cycle Facebook filter selfie to help spread helmet and eye safety awareness. Overall, we enjoyed partnering with Texas Medical Association, YMCA, and Siclovia and hope to partner again soon! Congrats Karina on being the B-EYE-Cycle winner once again!
