VON'S VISION FOUNDATION HIGHLIGHTS

Super Bowl History, Triumph, Keep Von Miller Briefly from His Vision Foundation
Tuesday, February 15, 2022



      

"I prefer to attend these Vision Days with my Foundation team, as the students, families, doctors, volunteers, Boys & Girls Club staff are all full of knowledge and stories I enjoy.   This year, I had to be elsewhere." (Von Miller, LA Rams #40, 2022 World Champion)

As Von's Vision Foundation's website says, often over 70% of the students who participate in Von Miller's Vision Days, Road Show programs, Locker program and Vision Centers have needed eye care and vision correction long before they ever attended an event like this.  Some had never visited an eye doctor before in their lives, so positive academic impacts are often seen immediately after these students from grades 6-12 in Los Angeles' Challenger Boys & Girls  Club return to school. 

"Being able to read better and perform better overall in classes is a game-changer for these kids," their potential and 'vision' of themselves (excuse my pun), shifts drastically.  I know, because I was similar when I was young.  I'm so glad I get to help."  (Von Miller)

As the Saturday program wound down at the Challengers Boys & Girls Club in Los Angeles, Von would be preparing with his LA Rams team mates for Super Bowl LVI the next day.  Reports after his personal and teams' overall triumph against the Cincinnati Bengals cite and record him honoring a deceased team mate from the Denver Broncos, Demaryius Thomas.  At just 33 this past December, his death was sudden and shocking.  "They were like brothers,"  Thomas' mother has been quoted as saying.  Six years after having won another Super Bowl Championship together, Von Miller still speaks of him often and how much Demaryius' friendship meant in his life.    As a first time father of Valor, born in August, Miller recognizes daily how losing a respected and wise voice such as Thomas, does add some additional stress to new fatherhood at times.  Miller stated in several interviews that his game performance was also driven by and dedicated to Valor, and the what the future holds for each of them.  

Joining the Los Angeles Vision Day were also the Foundation's long-standing frames partner, Etnia Barcelona Foundation, who had some great swag for the students, and several impressive examples of their advertising campaigns on-hand, one being based on real kids' art submitted by them to eye doctors.  

     


Also on-hand were a group of local optometrists, volunteering their day to the Foundation.  The group was managed by an optometrist and kindred spirit of Von's, quoting,

"Vision to Learn is proud to partner with Von's Vision providing free eye exams for students at Challengers Boys and Girls Club. Providing kids in need with access to vision care has been our mission for almost ten years, and we salute Von Miller's dedication to addressing this widespread need."  (Damian Carroll, National Director, Vision to Learn)
