Hampton Roads/Virginia Beach Chapter
From the President’s Desk
Welcome to the Hampton Roads Chapter of FFB! We all share the same goal, to fund the research that will one day cure the retinal degenerative diseases of more than 10 million Americans. We also serve as a support system for each other. It is imperative that no one feel alone in the struggles of living with these diseases or in the fight to cure them!
This chapter covers Eastern Virginia from Williamsburg to Virginia Beach. We have been very successful in the past by staging a very exciting VisionWalk!
A cure is in sight!!
Come join the fun and spread the word. Your ideas and excitement are what is needed. Your ideas on how to attract sponsors and friends are needed. There is great support for any idea you may have and brain-storming is greatly encouraged. No idea is too small.

The 7th Annual Hampton Roads VisionWalk took place Sunday (4/15), and it was one for the books. Over 150 dedicated participants braved the storm and VisionROCKED the house all afternoon! Rain may have dampened the ground...and the tents...and our hair...but it didn't dampen our spirits!
The Hampton Roads VisionWalk is on its way to exceeding its $76,000 goal thanks to the hard work of our dedicated teams and sponsors! Excellent work so far – let’s keep it going!” You can still make a donation at www.FightBlindness.org/HamptonRoadsVisionWalk.
