Reader Spotlight: Lutz Resident Fights Blindness
Mrs. World April Lufriu is on a mission to end blindness.
Lutz Patch always invites readers to share their own news, events and photographs on the site. Not too long ago, Foundation Fighting Blindness took advantage of that open offer by posting some photographs on the Pics & Clips neighborhood gallery.
Pictured above is April Lufriu, also known as Mrs. World, a Tampa native and Lutz resident. Lufriu is seen here walking during the Tampa Bay 5k VisionWalk, which took place on Oct. 27 at Tampa’s Al Lopez Park. Proceeds from the event benefitted Foundation Fighting Blindness.
“Lufriu is determined to advance sight-saving research and awareness because she and her two children are affected with the vision-robbing disease retinitis pigmentosa,” the foundation wrote.
Have you taken a great picture of Lutz residents in action? Maybe you have a wonderful sunset shot to share or images from a youth sporting event? Whatever the case, upload it to the Pics & Clips gallery and your work just might be featured on the site!
