The Carroll Center for the Blind
After careful consideration and direction from local and state authorities relative to COVID-19, The Carroll Center for the Blind has made the difficult decision to postpone the 8th Annual Walk for INDEPENDENCE. As the Carroll Center continues to monitor the coronavirus situation, we will be determining a new date for the event and look forward to sharing that with you soon.
By postponing the Walk for INDEPENDENCE, we hope to help prevent the spread of coronavirus so that we can gather safely once it is deemed reasonable to do so. We understand that the only way that we can be safe and successful is to work together as a community and continue to follow the guidelines issued by the WHO, CDC, and Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
During this unprecedented and difficult time, we need your support more than ever. We are inviting support for donations, sponsorships, and encourage you to create a walk team or register to walk so please visit www.carroll.org/walk to get involved. With your help, we can make this year the best Walk for INDEPENDENCE yet! If you have any questions, please contact the development team at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (617) 969-6200.
Join us for the 8th Annual Walk for INDEPENDENCE on April 26th, 2020!
The Carroll Center for the Blind’s Walk for INDEPENDENCE is a family-friendly day that brings together the entire community in support of making a difference in the lives of people who are blind and visually impaired. The day kicks off with a one (1) and three (3) mile walk around the beautiful Newton Centre neighborhood, followed by a cookout, music, accessible games, a silent auction, raffles, giveaways and much more back at our campus. Bring family and friends (dogs, too!) – all are welcome to enjoy this fun day that celebrates how active blind and visually impaired people can be.
All of the activities offer a unique opportunity for both sighted and visually impaired people to participate and raise awareness about blindness, vision loss, and The Carroll Center for the Blind’s services. As impactful members of the community, the Walk for INDEPENDENCE brings all who attend closer to understanding our differences.
