2nd Annual Western New York VisionWalk was a huge success! More than
300 walkers joined us for a beautiful day in Delaware Park and we had
more than 30 volunteers helping us make it a fantastic event. Many
thanks to everyone who joined us!
The VisionWalk could not have been possible without the fabulous Walk Chair Sarah Malburg and Medical Co-Chairs Dr. Steven Fliesler and Dr. Jack Sullivan, and our entire planning committee. I want to also thank our volunteer coordinator Gail Pallas and our in-kind and logistics coordinators Jeanette Dean and Chris Szewczyk.
Last but not least, thank you to all of our sponsors, donors, team
captains, team members, volunteers, and vendors. Each of you are the
reason for our success!
Donations collected during the Walk will be added to the total this week, so keep your eye on the thermometer as it continues to rise. We are so close to our goal and will definitely beat it! Donations continue to be collected for the VisionWalk through June 30th and will count towards the goal. The website will stay live through that time and donations can be made online or they can be mailed to:
