The Sylvania Sunrise Lions Club, Inc. also partnered to sponsor the event. The White Cane Walk raises money to provide support services for the blind or visually impaired. In addition to the mile-long walk, participants were able to learn to use a white cane or engage in other activities designed to help the sighted understand life without, or with impaired, sight.

Sight Center's White Cane Walk has nice fall day
The Toledo Sight Center's annual fund-raiser, the White Cane Walk had a nice fall day for participants today.
It began at 9 a.m. at ProMedica's Flower Hospital, 5200 Harroun Rd., in Sylvania.
As the fifth annual year of the event, participants walked to promote awareness and education about the local Sight Center. The center provides services for people of all ages in the community who are blind or visually impaired.
Participants were given the option to walk either one or two miles around the hospital campus. In addition to exercise, there were also other awareness activities, such as a blindfolded food challenge.
