The New York City VisionWalk is just a few weeks away and our VisionWalk Warm Up is this Saturday (April 19th)!

Many thanks for all you are doing to help us get to goal! If you need any support with your fundraising or team building, please contact the New York team at (212) 244-1470. 

Looking for something fun to do on Saturday morning (April 19th)? Join the Foundation Fighting Blindness team at the Central Park Bandshell (map below) for a VisionWalk Warm Up! We'll be setting up a mini-walk to get everyone ready for the main event on May 3rd. All are welcome (but please let us know if you think you might attend). We'll have music, refreshments, and a short stage presentation followed by a 1.8 mile walk in the park. All of this gets underway starting at 8am (walking around 9am).
