White Cane Day – Hundreds turn out for students who are blind
Hundreds Make it a Magical Day for Utah’s Children who are Blind
Salt Lake City, Utah (October 12, 2018) – Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind is hosting a magical event for Utah’s students who are blind or visually impaired on October 12 from 6 to 9:00 p.m. at the Openshaw Education Center 1655 East 3300 South in Salt Lake City. “It will be like a carnival, with a magical theme. We’ll have magicians, hypnotists, exhibits, and more. And we won’t just be entertaining the crowds, the crowds don’t just watch. They dive right in. This event is huge, it means a lot to our students. The crowd gets bigger every year,” shared Kate Borg of the Utah School for the Blind.
Hundreds of students, their parents, and friends turn out for the event. People who are sighted can even get in on the fun, and with a blindfold, they too can attack the mobility challenges and orientation activities.
Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind provides outreach programs in the local schools throughout the entire State of Utah. There are also three USDB campuses located in Ogden, Salt Lake, and Orem. The schools and programs are known as a national model in providing the most responsive, caring, and innovative approach possible to meet the educational needs of the students.
