18th Destination Independence Walk + Family Fair

A fundraising event for Beyond Blindness

Event Information

The 18th Annual Destination Independence Walk + Family Fair represents the strength of our community since 2005. In a changing world, we must adapt to ensure our community is cared for and safe. Blind Children's Learning Center officially became Beyond Blindness in 2021 in the pursuit of meeting the expanding needs of the growing population supporters like you empower each day.

This year's walk will build upon everything walkers have loved for 18 years, and we are excited to announce that the event will merge with the successful family fair that brought 450 families together in July 2021!

WHY WE WALK

As we celebrate 60 years of service...Every child deserves to meet their fullest potential. Every family deserves to feel empowered and supported along the way.

Beyond Blindness aims to create a continuous and integrated Journey of Care from birth to age 22. And for the first time, YOU have the power to choose how funds you raise are used.
