Walk for Blind Independence

Lions Services Inc, is excited to host our 2nd Annual Walk For Blind Independence!

Lions Services is a 501(c)(3) based in Charlotte, N.C. The walk for Blind Independence supports the mission of Lions Services: Empowering people who are blind to achieve personal and economic independence by providing them with vocational rehabilitation and employment opportunities. 

About the Walk: Attendees will complete a 2 mile walk on paved trails at the Eastway Regional Recreation Center surrounded by scenic nature preserve and wetlands. This gathering aims to bring together individuals from the community who either experience low vision or have a love one affected by it. Everyone is welcome to participate.  Volunteers will be available if you need a walking guide.

Our goal for this walk is to raise $50,000, your presence and support will make all the difference. Join us to support and build a brighter future for the visually impaired and blind community. Let's raise awareness and funds to sustain and expand jobs at Lions Services for greater INCLUSION!  We look forward to walking alongside you on October 5th!

                               Every step we take, every dollar we raise, puts people with vision loss further on the path to independence!
