Sunday, April 26th, was a day to remember.  We hope you enjoyed our
festivities as we celebrated our fundraising efforts in support of the
Foundation and the critical research it funds. All of our teams came out with
such enthusiasm - making Walk Day a true celebration.

We greatly appreciate our VisionWalk Committee, Sponsors, and Volunteers!  A huge THANK YOU to each and every one of our team captains and walkers!
