CLEVELAND, May 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 19th, thousands will join forces to raise awareness for those affected by retinal degenerative diseases. Money raised through VisionWalk supports the important research funded by the Foundation Fighting Blindness, a national 501(c)(3) organization.
The walk is at Wade Oval, and thousands of family members of those affected by retinal degenerative diseases will show support. Registration is at 9a, and the Walk begins at 10a.
One of the Supporters named as a "Community Leader" in the Walk is the Cleveland Eye Clinic. The Cleveland Eye Clinic will be unveiling their newly acquired and refurbished classic 1950's ice cream trucks that will be travelling around the greater Cleveland area to benefit community charity events. The "Mr. ISee" vintage trucks are fully stocked with Pierre's ice cream bars, sandwiches and popsicles. The trucks will be used to raise money for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. The Cleveland Eye Clinic will be giving away free treats and collecting donations. Profits from the VisionWalk will go to "The Foundation Fighting Blindness".
