Join Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS Indiana) at Walking for Dreams Family & Pet Walk on Sunday, May 22, 2022! All funds raised at the event will help VIPS continue to provide critical early intervention services to Indiana's babies and toddlers with blindness/low vision and comprehensive support to their families.
Walking for Dreams has become our largest annual fundraiser, in fact, VIPS Indiana raised more than $20,000 last year and we hope to do even better this year- but we need your help!
HOW YOU CAN HELP-
*Sign up to walk! By signing up, you are committing to walk--at Crown Hill with us, or in your own neighborhood, at a park or wherever you choose--on behalf of VIPS and/or raise funds to support our critical programming. So what's next? Set a goal amount and start asking family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to donate on your behalf!
*Start a team! When you sign up, you have the option to start a team and build your own profile. If you select this option, you can start your very own fundraising team that your family and friends can register to walk on and/or make donations to. This is a great way to get your family and friends excited about raising money to support our VIPS families!
*Make a general donation. We get it. Not everyone will want to attend this fundraiser but making a donation will make an impact. Every dollar counts!
Please register online prior to the event to minimize gathering at the check-in table. When you register, you will either select the default team, join another team, or create your own!
The walk kicks off at Crown Hill Cemetery (700 38th St. Indianapolis, IN 46208). You can even bring your dog!
