Orlando Chapter Featured Volunteer
Jack and Sally Law
Jack and Sally Law came to the Foundation just under a year ago after attending a Visions Seminar in Orlando. Exuding energy and excitement they quickly jumped into getting involved with the 8th Annual VisionWalk and the rest is history. They were instrumental in organizing the placement of 5 billboards in the Orlando area, worked closely with several teams – in and out of the Orlando area – to create and print t-shirts and utilized their business, Embroidery Works Plus, to help with this and many other areas including printing walk-day signage and wrist bands for attendees. Their enthusiasm for the Foundation and the VisionWalk is amazing and their collective “can-do” attitude is infectious.
Diagnosed with RP four years ago, Sally initially felt like she was alone and destined to be isolated, but their visit to the conference and subsequent contact with Orlando Chapter President, Dan Day, proved to her that she is definitely not alone. Since her initial meeting with Dan and after working closely with Natalie and Kensi on the VisionWalk, Sally’s perspective has completely changed: “I felt like I did not have the hope that anything would ever change for me or for my family members who might be affected. I felt isolated and like I was the only one on Earth who has this,” she said. “My contact [with Dan and the Foundation] has given me hope and I especially have hope for the generations behind me. I felt like the VisionWalk introduced me to people that I want to be friends with and have a relationship with them and help them just as they have helped and supported me.”
Jack and Sally’s team – Sally’s Hope – celebrated its inaugural VisionWalk year with the prize for Best T-Shirt Design and nearly $3,000 in team donations, in addition to many new friends.
