Over 9 million Americans are currently affected with retinal degenerative diseases, many of whom have to give up doing the things they love like reading, driving and employment due to their declining vision. A cure cannot come soon enough!
VisionWalk is the signature fundraising event for the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB), a national eye research organization that is dedicated to providing treatments and cures for the people affected by retinal degenerative diseases.
Since 1971, FFB has raised over $370 million to support critical research that may one day lead to the cure of diseases such as RP, macular degeneration, Usher Syndrome and other retinal degenerative diseases.
The culmination of more than three decades of research has resulted in discovering the building blocks for cures through novel treatments like gene therapy, pharmaceutical therapy, nutrition, drug delivery, and retinal cell transplantation. We are asking you to help us by doing one or more of the following things:
Please join us for the 2015 walk (date to be decided). For information and/or a program, please contact:
