Thank you to our Western New York VisionWalk Participants!
The Western New York VisionWalk took place on Saturday, May 14th and despite the gloomy weather we had an incredible turnout at Canalside in support of the Foundation Fighting Blindness.  

Our teams did a great job reaching out to their networks to raise funds and awareness. Thank you to everyone who helped us get so close to our goal! We are still collecting donations now and until June 30th for the Western New York VisionWalk. It's never too late to donate to the VisionWalk. Let's keep up the great efforts and see if we can reach our goal!
