What is the Spring '21 Virtual VisionWalk?
On June 12, 2021, 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.
Virtual VisionWalk Kickoff!
On Thursday, March 25th, we held our Virtual VisionWalk Kickoff! We shared research updates, what to expect on walk day, fun fundraising ideas, exciting challenges and walk day activities. Participants also had an opportinity to connect with constituents from all spring walks across the country and heard inspiring stories from passionate volunteers.
