On Saturday, April 29th, over 400 walkers and 23 teams celebrated the 9th Annual Jacksonville VisionWalk at University of North Florida! It was an incredibly beautiful day as we walk 5K to raise funds for sight-saving research! By the close of the walk we raised over $80,000 putting us at 76% of our goal! Donations can be made until June 30th. Let's keep it going and take advantage of the next two months!

Check back often to watch the total climb and to see pictures of this year's VisionWalk!

Thank you to everyone who joined us, to our VisionWalk and chapter leaders, volunteers, sponsors, and in-kind donors who made this event an incredible success!
