Attendees will have the opportunity to hear a genetic counselor from Mayo Clinic, Kimberly Guthrie, present at the event.
Since its inception in the Spring of 2006, VisionWalks across the nation have raised over $28 million to fund sight-saving research, according to the VisionWalk website. The VisionWalk is the signature fundraising event for the Foundation Fighting Blindness, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
The 6th Annual Jacksonville VisionWalk will take place on April 26 at the University of North Florida.
