Day of Event Details
Grove #28, Ned Brown Meadow
Golf Road Entrance at Ring Road
Elk Grove Village, IL 60007
We will be setting up our stage and tents at the small pavillion closest to the parking lot at Ned Brown Meadow. There is plenty of parking in the lot right next to where we will be set up.
On Walk Day, the first thing you will want to do is turn in your money at the Registration Area. Registration will open at 9:00 a.m. and you can turn in donations (please convert cash into checks) and get your free VisonWalk T-Shirt if you raised $100 or more. Remember, this event will take place RAIN or SHINE.
Our walk route will start at the pavilion, head south along the bike path and over the bridge to the turnaround, and back again. This route is about 2 miles, but there are plenty of places you can cut it short if you prefer by simply turning around.
Create bright and colorful Team T-shirts so your group can find you at the walk site. There will be hundreds of walkers at the site so plan ahead by designating a meeting spot. You should also have a big Team Banner decorated with your Team's name on it so you can walk loud and proud letting everyone know everyone who you are!
VisionWalk is a completely FREE event! We do not require a pledge per mile or entrance fee. While participants are under no obligation to donate to FFB, we do suggest a minimum donation goal of $100 per walker.
There is no age requirement. When you navigate through the registration process you will have to check a box to electronically sign a waiver.
In addition, there is no requried size to form a Team. Teams can be comprised of 2 members to 2,000. We welcome Teams of all shapes and sizes!
To expedite the Registration process on Walk Day, please send your offline donations to the FFB Office prior to the Walk. Checks should be made payable to "Foundation Fighting Blindness" and please note in the "memo" section of your check, the name of the Team or Walker you would like your donation credited toward and your Walk city.
In addition, we advise you do not send cash through the mail. Please convert all cash to checks or money orders. Thank you!
