Illinois Retina supports 17th Annual Vision Walk

Illinois Retina Vision Walk Collage

We are proud to share that Illinois Retina was, again, a sponsor of the 17th annual Vision Walk supporting the Foundation Fighting Blindness Dr. Ramon Lee, along with Dr. Joseph Civantos, were the medical chairs for the event. We are grateful that Dr. Lee joined us for the walk and beautifully represented Illinois Retina on stage.  He gave a great speech at the event and had a pre-walk message for The Foundation Fighting Blindness.  You can read the message here:

Our Team Fight For Sight consisted of over 100 walkers and collectively raised over $10,000 which placed us 3rd among all participating teams – and we certainly were the largest team of all of them!  Not only was this the largest amount Illinois Retina raised but it was the highest number of walkers on our team!  We are so proud of the hard work the team did to raise funds.

We are beaming with pride and are pleased that we were able to help this very worthy cause.  We are looking forward to outdoing ourselves next year!
