Happy 10th Anniversary Charlotte VisionWalkers!

Did you know that over the last decade, the Charlotte VisionWalk has raised over $650,000 for critical, sight-saving research?  With numerous clinical trials now underway, VisionWalk is more important than ever. 

Since the first Charlotte VisionWalk ten years ago, there have been incredible advances in the fields of gene therapy, stem cell research and more.  We are close to finding a cure for blinding retinal degenerative diseases!  Every step at VisionWalk brings us closer!
