South Florida VisionWalk Teams, Volunteers, Sponsors, Donors and to Lesa Kretschmer for chairing the event. We had a beautiful day at the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park on Saturday, November 15, 2014 with about 250 participants attending this year's VisionWalk and the thermometer will be rising as we continue to count all our donations. Remember we have until December 31, 2014 to keep fundraising.

There were a number of shake ups the morning of the walk for our team awards and things continue to be competitive! Congratulations to the following teams who received awards at the walk:

Top Fundraising Team: The Katie Starr Team...ALCONWIN@SouthFlorida took the #1 position later in the day

Just before the start of the walk Hit Fitness Warehouse representatives Carolina Kohan, Caprice Lathe and Libby Burres warmed up our walkers.
