Congratulations San Diego!
It was a beautiful morning on Sunday, November 10th at NTC Park. Congratulations and THANK YOU to everyone who joined us at the 6th Annual San Diego VisionWalk. We had over 500 walkers and have raised over $155,000 for sight saving research. Congratulations on busting our VisionWalk goal!
This year we had a large group of runners join us. Congratulations to Michael Mobley of San Diego for being the first to cross the finish line!
