Join Us in Supporting the Indianapolis Vision Walk

Dear Brownsburg Animal Clinic Client,

My name is Morgan Estes. I am 13 years old and I am an eighth grader at Brownsburg West Middle School. I am selling these beautiful, one of a kind earrings to help raise money for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. They are handmade by my grandma in Salida, Colorado.

Handmade earrings are on display in the lobby at Brownsburg Animal Clinic and may be purchased to support the Morgan’s Visionaries team for the Indianapolis Vision Walk, Saturday, September 7, at Celebration Plaza at White River State Park.

I have had a visual impairment since birth due to Retinitis Pigmentosa which is a degenerative retinal disease that causes blindness. Since it is a degenerative disease, I could lose all my sight and become blind and not just legally blind. My visual impairment doesn’t slow me down! I am a singer in the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, I love to read, play with my dogs, and travel with my family.

The Foundation Fighting Blindness is an organization that funds research to help find treatments for retinal diseases like the one I have. Their mission is to cure blindness. Every year the Foundation Fighting Blindness does their largest fundraiser called the Vision Walk. This year will be the third year that my team, Morgan’s Visionaries, has participated and I am proud to say that we have raised almost $12,000 dollars so far.

My goal is to raise $7,000 more this year and by purchasing these earrings you can help me reach it!

I am hopeful that a cure will be found for my retinal disease, but the Foundation Fighting Blindness can’t find a cure if there are no funds. All proceeds from the sale of these earrings will go directly to the Foundation Fighting Blindness. By purchasing these earrings, you are helping to fund valuable research that could lead to a cure!

Misty Eyes ‘Raise the Woof’

Brownsburg Animal Clinic is a proud co-sponsor of the upcoming “Raise the Woof” fund-raiser for Misty Eyes Animal Center on Friday, November 13, starting at 6:00 p.m. at the Palms in Plainfield, 2353 Perry Road in Plainfield.

Since its founding in 2011, we have supported Misty Eyes, and we deeply appreciate the role they play in fostering animal welfare in our community. Their mission is “to end the needless euthanasia of domesticated pets in Hendricks County,” and they work toward that goal using a multi-faceted approach that involves collaboration with local organizations, teaching responsible pet ownership and the benefits of spaying or neutering pets, and placing homeless pets in qualified foster and adoptive homes.

The “Raise the Woof” event is a great opportunity for a fun night out for a wonderfully worthwhile cause. We hope to see you there!
