StLouisVW1 - smaller.jpgWe had an AMAZING day at our 8th Annual St. Louis VisionWalk on Sunday, September 21st! Over 525 walkers enjoyed a beautiful day at Tower Grove Park to celebrate our fundraising efforts in support of the Foundation and the critical research it funds. Special thanks to each and every one of you for everything you did to make walk day such a huge success. Our teams and walkers turned in over $10,000 on Walk day, bringing our fundraising total to more than $111,000 so far!
 
A very special thank you to Walk Co-chairs, Cassie & Jeremy Blackwell; Honorary Chair & Emcee, Maurice Drummond from KMOV; Family Chair, Mary Morgan-Corbitt; Chapter President, Jason Morris, and our amazing walk committee: Laura Abrams, Jen Bulmann, Nancy Holekamp, Krys Jacobs, Bob & Jill Morris, Leslie Morris, Bob Petrofsky, and Carol Sullivan.
