What is the Fall Virtual VisionWalk?
On October 24th, participants from across the nation will join together to show our united, unwavering commitment to the Foundation Fighting Blindness' mission: to find treatments and cures for blinding retinal diseases. Even though we can’t physically be together, we can each find our own way to show our support.
Since its inception in the Spring of 2006, VisionWalk has raised over $55 million to fund sight-saving research. As promising treatments move into critical human studies, the need for research funding is greater than ever.
Join the tens of thousands of people who have taken important steps toward a cure by participating in a 5K VisionWalk. Find a Walk near you and register today!
VisionWalk is a signature fundraising event of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Over 10 Million Americans are affected by blinding retinal diseases including macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and Usher syndrome. The Foundation Fighting Blindness is working to find treatments and cures for these devastating diseases. By funding leading edge research in areas such as genetics, gene therapy, transplantation, artificial retinal implants and pharmaceutical and nutritional therapies, The Foundation Fighting Blindness is making a difference today to make the world a brighter place for those suffering with retinal degenerative diseases.
