South Texas Eye Institute Siclovia YMCA Community Bike Contest

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!
