The Walks are the opportunity for community organizations to have up to 40% of the total amount of donations collected by them, returned for their humanitarian activities. Walkers, groups and community organizations need to register through their local Lions, Lioness and Leo clubs, or directly with the Lions of Illinois Foundation Office. Adult registration is $20.00 but will be waived with $100.00 or more in donations, and registrants will receive a special "Walk for Sight" T-Shirt. Students and youth under 18 are free but are encouraged to collect at least $50.00 in donations to receive the special Walk T-Shirt. All registration forms, with donation money collected, must be turned in prior to each event. Each locale will have special events geared to the whole family - so come and enjoy the day and "Walk for Sight."

"Each year, participation by Lions and local organizations does increase," said Director Stone, and with this being the 5th Anniversary of the Walks, he is looking forward to a large turnout. To walk for a great cause go to or for more information and to find your local lions club, contact the Foundation Office at 800-955-5466.
