TEAM PHOTOS

WALK ROUTE

VisionWalk is a 5K (3.1 mile) walk.  This is an out and back Walk. The path will be clearly marked with signs and volunteers.  For those of you who wish, please feel free to stop and rest or only walk a portion of the route. Don't forget the route is wheelchair and stroller accessible and the Walk is pet friendly so bring the whole family.

POST WALK AWARDS

After the Walk, we will be handing out our famous Flying Pig Awards.  Be sure to stick around to see if you are one of our winners.

RAIN OR SHINE

The Walk will happen rain or shine.  Right now the forecast is for 83 degrees and cloudy skies. Just in case, everyone send your anti-rain vibes these next few days for safety.
