Walk For Blind Independence
Every step we take, every dollar we raise, puts people with vision loss further on the path to independence!
Lions Services, a 501(c)(3) organization based in Charlotte, dedicated to offering employment opportunities to individuals who are blind, is thrilled to announce its first-ever 3K Walk for Blind Independence, taking place on Saturday, September 23, 2023. This community event aims to raise awareness about the remarkable opportunities generated by Lions Services and to secure funds that will enable us to sustain and expand these opportunities in the future.
