WBRC Completes 12th Annual White Cane Awareness Walk

White Cane Awareness Walk participants 2016 

Thank you to everyone who helped plan, implement, and who participated in the 12th Annual WBRC White Cane Awareness Walk in Los Altos, CA, on October 19, 2016. ...The walk was a huge success with over 60 participants from the Western Blind Rehabilitation Center, Los Altos City Staff including Mayor Jeannie Bruins, WBRC Alumni, past WBRC O&M Interns, Guide Dog Puppy Raisers, and other community agencies.
On October 6, 1964, a joint resolution of the Congress, HR 753, was signed into law authorizing the President of the United States to proclaim October 15 of each year as "White Cane Safety Day". White Cane Safety Day is now celebrated all around the world. Each year on October 15th, the President of the United States proclaims the day of White Cane Safety Day to “to recognize the contributions of Americans who are blind or have low vision”.
