Booth kids participate in Vision Walk

On Sunday Mar. 14, the JC Booth Middle School Builders Club participated in the Vision Walk in Atlanta. Vision Walk is the national signature fundraising event of the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Since its inception in the Spring of 2006, the program has raised over $10 million to fund sight-saving research.  Booth’s “Warrior Team Demmitt”  walked the three miles to support Mrs. Demmitt, the J.C. Booth nurse, who is gradually going blind due to an eye disease.

 Warrior Team Demmitt raised $615, double the amount from last year.  The event raised a total of $101, 615.32.
