SUNY Participates in Foundation Fighting Blindness’ VisionWalk

On Saturday, April 21st, SUNY Optometry's faculty, residents, staff, students, family and friends participated in the Foundation Fighting Blindness' signature fundraiser, VisionWalk.  SUNY had a team of 197 participants who did the 5K walk of the lower loop of Central Park.  They raised over $8500 which will help fund research of hereditary retinal disease such as RP and macular degeneration.  Kudos goes out to Dr. Sarah Harbove and her VisionWalk committee (Dr. Saysha Blazier, Dr. Susan Schuettenberg, Dr. Jolia Appel, Dr. Tom Wong, Dr. Isadora Ritter, Jennifer Gould, Julia Canestraro, Chelsie Stewart, Kim Poirier, Clarissa Kum, Beena Patel, Jessica Scherer, Julia Ingolia, Yulia Bababekova, Rebecca Pietrasik and Katherine Woo) for their hard work to make the event a success!  They are looking forward to next year's VisionWalk.
