EVENT DESCRIPTION

Come out and join the fight against blindness at the Foundation Fighting Blindness’ 6th Annual Hampton Roads VisionWalk! This fundraiser 5k will take you up and down the boardwalk as you walk to raise awareness for retinal degenerative disease research. This event has no entry fee – simply bring an open heart and your walking shoes! And, bring your friends and your family too! Light refreshments will be provided throughout the day.

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 milllion people in the US alone are affected by RRD’s – won’t you come join us?

Hampton Roads VisionWalk Kickoff Meeting

Come join the Hampton Roads chapter of the Foundation Fighting Blindness to kick off the Annual Hampton Roads VisionWalk with the Hampton Roads VisionWalk Kickoff! This fun complimentary lunch is a great opportunity to mix and mingle with our Walk Chairs, Team Captains and other Walkers. Get ready to hear special presentations from unique guest speakers in the field of low vision. We will be distributing materials so that you can paint VB yellow and blue and you will also get some great tips on building your team and continuing your fundraising.
