Dozens walked through South Burlington Sunday -- without perfect sight, but all with the same vision.
The Vermont Association for the Blind and Visually impaired held its second annual Vision Walk. The two mile walk took place at Dorset Park.
The organization provides free training, services and support to visually impaired individuals. Walkers paid a registration fee and fund-raised as well.
"Our Vision Walk is obviously to raise money but it's more of a raising awareness and letting people know what we do and the services we provide," said Ayeshah Raftery, a VABVI Spokesperson.
Organizers say most of their clients have age-related impairments, but do work with about 300 children. The private organization has clients throughout the Green Mountain State. Sunday event was expected to raise between 10 and 15-thousand dollars.
