Chicagoland VisionWalk

VisionWalk Gears up for 14th Anniversary Celebration to Help End Blindness

Visually Impaired Children, Adults and Families Unite at June 2 Event to Support Sight-Restoring Research

The Foundation Fighting Blindness’ 14th annual Chicagoland VisionWalk will include hundreds of participants walking to raise funds to support gene therapy, stem call and pharmaceutical-based research that holds the promise of saving and restoring sight for people living with retinal disease. Since their start, tens of thousands of people have participated in VisionWalk events across the country raising more than $48 million to fund sight-saving research.

“VisionWalk is more than a walk; it is a community event, a positive social institution for people of all ages to bring attention to the need for sight-saving and sight-restoring therapies,” says Michelle Nash, VisionWalk Chair. “VisionWalk provides an opportunity to further drive the conversation around the need to fund early-stage human trials for treatments that could one day end blindness.”

The Chicagoland VisionWalk will take place at Busse Woods, Ned Brown Meadow on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at 9 a.m. to help raise awareness and funds for sight-saving research for retinal diseases including retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration, and Usher syndrome, which affect more than 10 million Americans.

The Chicagoland VisionWalk has steadily evolved into a significant fundraising mechanism aimed at funding cutting-edge studies towards preventions, treatments and cures of blinding retinal diseases. Helping fuel the surge in participants is the high interest among walkers who lead full and productive lives despite the challenges they have faced with vision loss.  Joining these participants are friends and loved ones helping to advance innovative treatments for curing blindness and looking towards a future of hope.

“Hundreds of walkers, many of whom are affected by, or have a loved one living with retinal disease, are expected at this year’s Chicagoland VisionWalk, “ said Steve Sroka, Associate Director of Events. “This year, we’re excited to feature live entertainment, bounce houses, balloon twisting, face painting, free lunch and more.
