Our 18th Annual Chicago VisionWalk is a family-friendly event where teams raise funds for retinal disease research. We need volunteers for all or part of the VisionWalk. Set up will begin at 6:30 am and the event will end about 12:30 pm. Responsibilities include putting up tents, setting up tables and chairs, working at the registration tent checking-in attendees, serving refreshments, helping with the kids’ area, and cleaning up at the end of the event. Any amount of time you can give would be a huge help!
