Mark your calendar in preparation for Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) has a signature national event called Night Steps.
Night Steps is an annual fundraising event held across the country. It is an exciting, fun, and easy family-friendly five-kilometer walk at night under the stars. The event, held this year on September 26th at Holland Park in Surrey, will be an evening of celebration filled with music, family, and friends.
For those who are unable to walk, there is always the option of volunteering for the event. Volunteers help with set-up, running kid’s activities, keeping everyone safe, cheering on walkers, and more. Events such as Night Steps also raise awareness about CNIB and the work that they do. This allows anyone who is experiencing vision loss or who knows someone who is to find them, turn to them for valuable support, and learn valuable skills to live independently.
CNIB is a registered charity that focuses on providing personalized services so that those who are blind or partially sighted learn to ‘see beyond vision loss, build their independence, and lead the lives they want. CNIB also works in conjunction with Canadians who are blind or partially sighted to eliminate societal barriers. In British Columbia, CNIB only receives 9% funding from government sources. They rely on the generosity of donors and events such as Night Steps to fund their life-changing rehabilitation programs. CNIB, and their Night Steps event, are all about passionately providing personalized, community based support, as well as providing a national voice to empower those Canadians who are blind or partially sighted.
