Spring '21 National Virtual VisionWalk Recap
Thank you for joining us for the Spring National Virtual VisionWalk on Saturday, June 12, 2021! We appreciate all you have done over the past few months to spread the Foundation’s critical message in unique and creative avenues.
Thousands of supporters across the nation, joined us for the Spring National Virtual VisionWalk. We gathered on Zoom and Facebook for our VisionWalk activities including two fun and interactive break-out rooms. And we participated in the VisionWalk in our own way; some walked in nearby parks, some walked on treadmills, and some danced in their backyards in their favorite VisionWalk t-shirts.
We are feeling extra thankful for YOU; who you are, what you mean to the Foundation Fighting Blindness family, and for all you do to help us forward our mission to find treatments and cures for blinding diseases! Together, we are #VisionWalkStrong.
Below are videos of the Welcome & Ribbon Cutting and Closing Remarks from John Corneille:
