Celebrating National White Cane Awareness Month
With Foundation for Blind Children
PHOENIX – In celebration of National White Cane Awareness month, the Foundation for Blind Children (FBC) is hosting their annual “White Cane Walk” event. This free community event is open to the public and raises awareness about vision loss, the work of Foundation for Blind Children and how our community can help our visually impaired neighbors stay safe as they travel.
On Saturday, October 15, 2022, the morning will kick off at Foundation for Blind Children (1234 E. Northern Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85020) with a 1.2-mile walk and will be followed with fun and interactive learning activities for individuals of all ages to include: face painting, bounce house, blindfold obstacle course, blindness etiquette, braille bracelet making and much more!
No pre-registration is required. The walk begins at 9:00 a.m. and the festivities go until 11:00 a.m. Please contact Cody Alvarez by email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone, 602-678-5817, with any questions.
About the Foundation for Blind Children
The Foundation for Blind Children was founded in 1952 by parents of blind children who wanted services for their blind children in Phoenix, instead of having to send them to the State Institution for the Blind in Tucson.
FBC serves the blind and visually impaired of all ages in Arizona, from birth to 102 years old, our oldest current client. As the only agency of its kind in Arizona, the Foundation for Blind Children is an essential resource to children, families and adults with blindness or low vision.
With three Valley locations (East Valley, West Valley and Central Phoenix), we strive to serve as “the” community’s resource for blind, visually impaired, and multi-handicapped children, adults, and their families.
