Happy 10th Anniversary Charlotte VisionWalkers!

Did you know that over the last decade, the Charlotte VisionWalk has raised over $650,000 for critical, sight-saving research?  With numerous clinical trials now underway, VisionWalk is more important than ever. 

Since the first Charlotte VisionWalk ten years ago, there have been incredible advances in the fields of gene therapy, stem cell research and more.  We are close to finding a cure for blinding retinal degenerative diseases!  Every step at VisionWalk brings us closer!

The energy is starting to build and we can feel it as we begin to approach this year’s Charlotte VisionWalk!  To help get the electricity started, Current, powered by GE is going to award $1,000 to the walk team which raises the most dollars in 24 hours. 
Beginning on today, August 26th at 6:00 p.m. and ending on Saturday, August 27th at 6:00p.m., gather your friends, family, business colleagues and everyone you know to help you bring in the highest amount of money for this year’s walk.

Make sure the donations are entered on your thermometer.  If you have checks or cash, enter the donation information here and it will be entered on your thermometer!
