Thank you Chicago VisionWalkers!!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
The 11th Annual Chicago VisionWalk took place on Sunday, June 12th and was a huge success!! We had great weather, smiling faces, and over 500 people in attendance at Busse Woods! We have raised over $290,000 for retinal disease research and donations continue to come in.
Our teams and walkers all did an amazing job reaching out to their networks to raise funds and awareness. We are still collecting donations until June 30th. Any additional donations can be sent to:
Foundation Fighting Blindness
