17th Annual Destination Independence Walk

04.14.21

For the past sixteen years, friends and family have joined parents and children of the Blind Children’s Learning Center for a 5k walk to raise funds and awareness of their organization.  This year, due to COVID guidelines, the walk will be taking place in a relay format, allowing participants to enjoy each other and the festive atmosphere of the walk at a safe, social distance.

The event provides funding for BCLC’s three areas of focus: Academic & Mobility Support, Family Support Services, and Early Intervention. All of these programs are vital to the Blind Children’s Learning Centers families as they cover braille training, white cane mobility, parent education and training, and more.

The relay will take place on Sunday, April 18th from 10 am – 3 pm at Mater Dei High School’s track in Santa Ana. There will be live music, entertainment and outdoor dining available to all participants. Individual registration is $29 per person age 9+ which includes a t-shirt for the event.

It is recommended that participants work in teams of at least five walkers or more. Teams are able to go up to about 50 walkers in size while still remaining physically distant. Team captains will be responsible for scheduling each participant’s time on the track.
