Over ten million Americans are affected by blinding retinal diseases such as macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, and Usher syndrome. Foundation Fighting Blindness is working to find treatments and cures for these devastating diseases. The Foundation funds leading-edge research in areas such as genetics, gene therapy, transplantation, artificial retinal implants, and pharmaceutical and nutritional therapies.
Since 2006, VisionWalk has raised over $25 million to support the mission of the Foundation. Over 50 walks are planned for 2013, including the 8th Annual Orange County VisionWalk at Angel Stadium.
Join us on Sunday, June 9th as we round the bases once more for a cure. The morning will be filled with fun, food, bounce house and other kid activities, and a live performance by local musician, Davis Fetter, so make a difference! Join the Foundation Fighting Blindness and take important steps towards a cure by participating in this fun and family-friendly event.
