On August 27th, we had an amazing turnout for our Fall Virtual VisionWalk Kickoff with people joining from across the country and internationally! We so appreciate everyone joining us to learn how they can support our mission to find treatments and cures for blinding diseases through our Fall National Virtual VisionWalk on Saturday, October 24th.
Below is the recording and transcript of the presentation:
Since its inception in the Spring of 2006, VisionWalk has raised over $57 million to fund sight-saving research. As promising treatments move into critical human studies, the need for research funding is greater than ever.

VisionWalk is a signature fundraising event of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

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.
