In celebration of White Cane Awareness Day (aka White Cane Safety Day), LightHouse for the Blind cordially invites you to join us as we hit the streets of San Francisco in a walk for independence and a post-walk celebration in the PLEASE TOUCH ME GARDEN this October 15 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Established in 1964, White Cane Awareness Day is a national observance honoring the many achievements of blind and low vision individuals, as well as the symbolic significance of the white cane as an essential tool for independence. In 2011, White Cane Awareness Day was also named Blind Americans Equality Day by President Barack Obama.
Each registered participant will receive a free LightHouse Tee-shirt to wear during the walk. Light snacks will be served in the PLEASE TOUCH ME GARDEN after the walk.
Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 694-7326 by October 12.
