Notre Dame walk raises money to help cure blindness


South Bend, Ind. Dozens hit the pavement Sunday afternoon, all to help those dealing with blindness.

The fourth annual Vision Walk took place at the Notre Dame campus.

More than 150 people took part in this year's event.

The goal is to raise awareness for more research and development of treatments and cures for those affected by blindness.

“Our very own Father Hesburg, president emeritus, suffers from retinal degeneration,” explained walk coordinator Antoinette Pusateri. “That's why I think there’s so many people out here, we're supporting him and others like him who suffer from blindness.”

All the money raised today will go the "Foundation Fighting Blindness".
