White Cane Experience

About Your Day:

Service animals especially come with a variety of benefits and help in many ways. They give a blind person more confidence, friendship, and security. Blind people who use service animals have increased confidence in going about day-to-day life and are comforted by a constant friend.

Our White Cane Walk gives the public an opportunity to be blindfolded and led around by the blind, to temporarily experience what people go through all the time. It is only one of many experiences that await you on a free day filled with fun, age-related contests, games, prizes, demonstrations, ceremonies, giving and food, at the showcase of downtown Akron- Lock 3 Park!


Our wonderful sponsors who give at the upper levels have an option of having a booth set up and banner presence. It will be marketed through all media sources, the scoreboard at the event and many marketing and media outlets.

Sponsorship is layered in tiers, depending upon the support offered. Platinum and Diamond level sponsorship enjoy greatest marketing volume before and at the event, a table for displaying information, choice of kiosk positioning and a sponsor award.
