What is the White Cane Walk?

Cleveland Sight Center’s White Cane Walk, presented by the Association of Indian Physicians of Northern Ohio, is an annual fundraising event that attracts over 400 guests. Through a generous challenge grant from the SWP Foundation, the first $30,000 raised will be matched dollar for dollar!

Listen to CSC's Steve Frohwerk on WTAM 1100s "Wills and Snyder in the Morning" show as he discusses Cleveland Sight Center, our mission, offerings and the upcoming White Cane Walk. Click here for the audio.

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. All proceeds benefit the programs and services at Cleveland Sight Center.

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!
