Even though the winter has been mellow this year, we just bet that most of you are ready to be heading outside to enjoy the refreshing days of Spring that are ahead. We hope that being outside means getting your walking gear together and making a “go” of it! The best “go” we can think of is to join us for the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at DeSales University, Center Valley, PA.
Once again we can thank our friends at Highmark for sponsoring this event which benefits 28 participating Lehigh Valley health and human services organizations. The Center for Vision Loss has taken part every year and the great thing is that Highmark Blue Shield underwrites 100% of the cost of the event so that the funds you raise for our agency directly benefit us.
There are lots of choices. You can walk as an individual, form your own team or be a virtual walker. Our Goal is to raise $5,000 to support our summer Camp I CAN! for youth ages 7-13 who are visually impaired. The camp takes place in July and is always a lot of fun for our kids.
Register and donate now at www.walkforahealthycommunity.org. Or if you prefer that we do this for you, click here for the Walker/Donation Form and mail it to us with your donation by May 26, 2017. Either way the walking is easy with the 2.5 Mile Walk beginning at 9 am and the 1 Mile Walk beginning at 9:15 am and virtual walkers do not even have to walk to participate!
