11th Annual Nashville VisionWalk

Thank you Nashville for coming out and braving the weather with us on Saturday! Although we had to cut our celebration short due to the weather, we enjoyed getting to see you all and celebrate with you!  

By the end of the walk, we raised almost $47,000 putting us at 78% of our goal! There is still plenty of time to get donations in to help us reach our goal!  All money turned in by June 30 will help us reach our goal of $60,000.  Check back often to watch the total climb and to see pictures from this year's walk.

Thank you to our walk chair, Charlotte Owen, our medical chair, Dr. Amish Purohit, and our chapter president, Peggy Mitchell for your outstanding leadership! 

Thank you to all of our team captains and participants for pushing the needle forward and helping us raise funds for research and awareness!
