The Cleveland Sight Center White Cane Walk & 5K

Saturday, June 18, 2016 8:30 AM

Join us Saturday, June 18th from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for Cleveland Sight Center’s White Cane Walk & 5K Run. Register today for the 5K Run, 1-Mile Stroll, and White Cane Walk.

Cleveland Sight Center’s White Cane Walk & 5K Run, presented by the Association of Indian Physicians of Northern Ohio, is an annual community awareness and fundraising event to support CSC’s mission of empowering people with blindness and vision loss to realize their full potential. Through a generous challenge grant from the SWP Foundation, the first $30,000 raised will be matched dollar for dollar!

Located on the main square of Legacy Village, the street fair atmosphere provides an opportunity for individuals to learn how those with vision loss perform daily tasks through hands-on activities and educational stations, including walking the sidewalks under blindfold using a white cane while escorted by a sighted guide.

The event is fun for all ages and in addition to the walk and run, there will be activities including face painting, balloon artists, music, dancing, contests and more!
