The North Dakota Association for the Blind will host the 24th annual Walk for Vision event Friday, Oct. 14 at the North Dakota State University Crossroads Campus Lutheran Center, 1201 N. 13th Ave., Fargo.

The event coincides with the observance of White Cane Safety Day established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1964 that designates Oct. 15 of each year to be observed as White Cane Safety Day.

Walk plans include sharing information about the proper use of the white cane, a celebratory walk, demonstration of accessible technology, door prizes, and refreshments for participants.

Registration will begin at 4 p.m.

A minimum donation of $5 is suggested. All proceeds from the celebratory walk will go towards funding the many service programs that NDAB offers to people who have visual impairments. Donations can also be made online at www.ndab.org .
