10K/5K Run and 5K Walk
There are many people in the Topeka area who simply cannot afford eyeglasses they desperately need. The Topeka Lions Club serves the community by purchasing eyeglasses for those who qualify. Since 1929 the Topeka Lions proudly serves the Topeka community with sight-related services which are made possible by fundraising efforts.

 On average the club receives about 12 requests per month for assistance for eyeglasses. Requests come from families with young children and/or adults including individuals from the Topeka Rescue Mission.
