Residents help raise funds for disease during 7th annual Seeing is Believing run
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
Residents from around Kern County were out Saturday to take part in the seventh annual Seeing is Believing 5K run.
The run supports research for Leber congenital amaurosis, which is a rare eye disease which can cause severe vision loss or blindness.
Currently, there is no known cure for the disease.
The group hopes that the run will help spread more awareness about the disease.
