Schedule of Events:
5K Run – 8:30 a.m.
1 Mile Stroll – 9:00 a.m.
White Cane Walk – 10:00 a.m.
Located on the main square of Legacy Village, the festive, 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. All proceeds benefit the programs and services at Cleveland Sight Center.
The event is fun for all ages and in addition to the walk, there will be activities including face painting, balloon artists, music, dancing, contests and more!
Thanks to the following sponsors of this year's event:
Association of Indian Physicians of Northern Ohio
Delta Gamma Cleveland East
