The "VisionWalk" is the Foundation Fighting Blindness' signature event, taking place in nearly 50 cities every year. Since its inception in 2006, the VisionWalk has collectively raised over $41 million that has gone directly to funding research, preventions, and treatments of retinal degenerative diseases (RDD) - some of the leading causes of blindness worldwide. Over 10 million people in the US alone are affected by RRD's - won't you come join us?
