INVESTED IN OUR COMMUNITIES – AND COUNTING.
Whether you’re a Visions member or just a part of one of the communities we serve, we always take time out to show that Visions Cares so we can have a larger impact.
One way we do that is with acts of kindness, a movement we started as part of our 50th anniversary in 2016 and kept going due to overwhelmingly positive response. Whether it’s an umbrella on a rainy day, a cup of coffee or a free family night at the movies, we love putting a smile on someone’s face while reminding them to pay it forward.
4 on the 4th Road Race
We started the 4 on the 4th Road Race in 2018 as a way to give back to our community and create a fun event based on healthy activities. The 4 on the 4th Road Race brings participants on a 4-mile road course through our HQ’s home town of Endwell, NY. The course goes through neighborhoods, a beautiful park, and past some of our businesses, delivering participants to a rockin’ post-race party at our newly renovated headquarters. This race has drawn over 400 runners each year and has resulted in over $5,000 donated to our charity partner, The John Mack Foundation.
Visions Family Day
Visions Family Day has grown into a much-anticipated summer event. This fun and free event draws over a thousand attendees to our headquarters in Endwell, NY each year! Families look forward to games, crafts, live music, and more each year. A new addition in 2019 was a pet adoption pop-up with the Animal Care Sanctuary!
We’re proud to be the box office sponsor of the Lakeview Amphitheatre in Syracuse, NY. Our volunteers give out fun swag, play games, and love interacting with the fans!
Free Ice Cream Truck
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! We love offering acts of kindness in all the communities we serve. Here we are in Norwich, NY, giving out free ice cream from a local food truck!
