Your DC/MD chapter is fielding a team to raise money for VisionWalk 2023, supporting the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Join our team as a walker or donate to our team.

We all know the stress of the shortage of teachers. Luxterna has proven that at least some students’ vision loss can be stalled, and perhaps reversed!
This research, and the other ongoing clinical trials into medications and gene therapy are expensive. We can step up to support the researchers through walking together to raise awareness and raising donations.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness’s work will lead to additional preventions, treatments, and cures for millions of Americans and millions more around the world who are affected by retinal degenerative diseases.
Since its inception in the Spring of 2006, VisionWalk has raised over $63 million to fund sight-saving research. As promising treatments move into critical human studies, the need for research funding is greater than ever.
Join the tens of thousands of people who have taken important steps toward a cure by participating with us in the Baltimore VisionWalk in Spring 2023 at Latrobe Park & Fort McHenry.

Foundation Fighting Blindness will supply VisionWalk t-shirts to those who raise over $100 and there will be a special symbol for our AER walkers and potential prizes as well!
Your support will make a huge difference and mean so much to our students, clients and their families.
Register for the walk, or donate to our team, here

If you plan to walk, post the link to your Facebook, Instagram, or whatever social media you kids use these days to get donations.
