Heather Moyse is an ambassador for Operation Eye Sight, which is an organization that is helping to overcome preventable blindness.
"I have a passion for helping those who are at a disadvantage. Being an Olympian is important because it opens up these opportunities to give a little more weight to my name or my voice behind what I want to change in the world," the 31-year-old said.
