St. Louis Chapter VisionWalk Feature Story

Congratulations, St. Louis!

On Sunday, September 22, 2013 twenty seven teams and 700 walkers gathered at Tower Grove Park's Pool Pavilion to raise funds and awareness for retinal degenerative disease research.

Our walkers blew our $125,000 fundraising goal out of the water by raising over $130,000 for retinal research! Reaching this milestone is a local record in the St. Louis community and our walkers and teams are very proud. Congratulations to our teams and walkers for a hugely successful walk and a great season of advocacy!

We want to extend a thank you to our walk co-chairs, Cassie and Jeremy Blackwell, for their tremendously hard work this year. And of course, our day wouldn’t have been as special without the hard work of our 2013 VisionWalk Committee, who worked diligently to ensure our day was perfect!
