Eye Stroll for Vision 2013

Despite the heavy rain, over 420 people showed up at the Houston Zoo in their ponchos and rain boots to stroll through the rain! Three of the biggest groups at the stroll included Royal Sonesta Houston, and students from Pearland Memorial High School and Klein Forest High School.

Our biggest volunteer groups included 30 University of Houston POPS students, 11 UH Delta Gammas, and 10 Delta Gamma alumnae. Thank you to all of the volunteers for your hard work and support! The event could not have been as successful without your help!

Thank you to University of Houston’s Dean of the College of Optometry and Prevent Blindness Texas board member, Dr. Earl Smith, III for being this year's Eye Stroll for Vision honoree!
