JUNE 6, 2020 — This year will be different!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our previously scheduled May 16th
in-person VisionWalk has been converted to a Virtual VisionWalk on
Saturday, June 6, 2020. While we are sad to not be walking in
person, we can still connect apart and find our own way to show our
support. We hope you will join us in spreading awareness for the Foundation!
Join the Diuble Family in participating in the National Virtual VisionWalk from wherever you are by registering for free online. The Michigan VisionWalk is chaired by Angie Diuble and April Topel and youth chaired by Abby Diuble, Lilly Diuble, and Taylor Wesley.
What will National Virtual VisionWalk Day look like?
Following your state and city guidelines and recommendations: go for a [socially distanced] walk outdoors, as you are able, in your park, neighborhood, backyard, or even your driveway.
Complete a 5K indoors on a treadmill, exercise bike, or any other exercise equipment you may have in your house.
Complete an indoor exercise with your family.
Post a selfie on social media using the hashtag #VisionWalkStrong. (Don't have social media? No problem – email your photos to KKruse@FightingBlindness.org and we'll be happy to post them online for you!)
About Foundation Fighting Blindness
The Foundation Fighting Blindness is a 501c(3) non-profit that was established in 1971 with the goal of being the driving force behind the research that would provide preventions, treatments, and cures for those affected by blinding retinal degenerative diseases. In that time, we have raised over $760 million and are proudly the world’s leading private funder of retinal disease research. The Foundation hosts over 36 VisionWalks throughout the U.S. raising over $55 million since 2006 to fund research, has identified over 270 retinal-disease causing genes, has 38 clinical trials either underway or being prepared to launch for potential treatments, funded 80 grants in 2019 with 90+ investigators at 67 institutions, and has seen significant breakthroughs in recent years such as: Luxturna (the first FDA-approved gene therapy for the eye or any inherited disease) and the Argus II (the first FDA-approved bionic retina). The Foundation is a beacon of hope for those affected and proceeds raised at events like VisionWalk help us shine even brighter!

SHOOTING FOR SIGHT
HOUSE RULES FOR "SHOOTING FOR SIGHT" RAFFLE
License # C29394
Raffle runs 4/1/2020 through 4/30/2020.
The winning number comes from the Michigan Evening 3-digit lottery drawing.
The prize will be given in the form of a Cabela’s gift card for the value of the gun or gift card listed on each date on the back of your ticket.
If the raffle ticket for the daily number has not been sold, DFV would utilize www.random.org to randomly draw the winning number. That “drawing” would be streamed live to the Diuble Family Vision Facebook page between 7:30pm and 8:00pm the same day.
Winners will be contacted and pick up of prize would normally be arranged by the following Friday, however with the current Covid-19 pandemic social distancing requirements and the executive “stay at home” order, this timeframe will need to be adjusted and nontraditional arrangements may need to be made to dispense the prizes. We will work with each winner to make this happen.
There is likely going to be a delay in obtaining the winning gift cards from Cabela’s due to the business of this raffle not being deemed “essential” per the executive order. Safety is our first priority and we will obtain and dispense the gift cards as soon as it is safe to do so. Please be patient with us as we navigate these unforeseen circumstances.
