At Notre Dame, we are fighting to restore sight to the 10 million Americans currently suffering from blindness, including those in our own South Bend community.


We would be honored if you would join us in our fight for sight on Sunday, September 21st, 2014, as the Notre Dame Biology Club hosts the 5th Annual Notre Dame VisionWalk. The VisionWalk is a national signature fundraising event for the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB), a national eye research organization that has raised over $450 million for research on the development of treatments and cures for those affected by retinal degenerative diseases.
