GES Mission for the Steubenville VA

Our mission on Saturday October 1, 2016 will be to Steubenville, OH. This will be a screening event for the Steubenville branch of the VA.  This is one of the few “screening-type” of events that GES is involved with, but because the VA provides exceptional follow-up for the veterans, we are able to refer those in whom a potential problem is discovered to the nearest VA where they will get complete care. We'll be screening about 200 veterans over the course of the morning. This event is fast paced, rewarding and alot of fun. The location is at 500 Market Street, Suite 310, Steubenville, OH 43952.

VisionWalk is the national signature fundraising event for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Since its inception in the spring of 2006, the program raised over $30 million to fund sight-saving research.

As promising treatments move into critical human studies, the need for research funding is greater than ever before.  Join the tens of thousands of people who have taken important steps toward a cure by participating in a 5K VisionWalk.  
 
Register your spouse, significant other and kids --- make it a family affair.  There will be basket raffles, music, and other surprises as well.   All those registered to walk will receive a free raffle ticket for the basket raffles.

If you cannot participate, but would like to make a donation, you can donate online at the web address above or make a check payable to the Foundation Fighting Blindness, and mail to:  Lauren Wally, UPMC Eye Center, 203 Lothrop Street, 8th floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.  

The UPMC Eye Center is the community captain for this walk which further strengthens our commitment to help with the fight against blindness.
