Walkers arrive at their destination

The White Cane Day Walk was Oct. 30 in Talladega.

The event highlighted the importance of the white cane to the independence of people with visual impairments. The free, public event was organized by the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS) and the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind (AIDB). The festivities began with a one-mile walk that took participants from the Greater Talladega Area Chamber of Commerce to the Talladega Regional Family Life Center at 405 Battle St. W. The event also featured a number of fun and educational activities, including free vision screenings, musical entertainment, assistive technology demonstrations, blind and low-vision exhibits, and blindfolded activities and games.
