Start of WNY VW 2015

Our Western New York VisionWalk had over 200 people in attendance and despite the fog, we managed to raise almost $30,000 for blindness research. We hope you enjoyed our festivities as we celebrated our fundraising efforts in support of the Foundation and the critical research it funds. And remember while walk day has passed you have until June 30th to raise that thermometer to our goal! 

Pictures from the event will be shared later this week.  If you have any that you would like to share please post on our Facebook event and use #WNYVW2015.
