Join Lions Services staff and volunteers on September 23, 2023, for our 3K Walk for Blind Independence. This accessible-to-all event will take place at the US National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC. We aim to raise $25,000 from registration fees, donations, and sponsorships.

Monies raised will benefit our Blind Innovation Center Initiative, our hand soap launch, and additional projects and programs that promote the independence of blind and low vision individuals.

About Lions Services

For more than 85 years, Lions Services has provided employment opportunities to the blind and visually impaired community, including blind veterans. Our employees feel more confident and independent because of the opportunities we provide. Independence is critical for fostering inclusivity and empowering people to lead fulfilling lives. We understand that in the United States, 70% of people who experience low vision are unemployed and we’re on a mission to change that. We appreciate your support.
