2018 Step It Up Walk


The National Federation of the Blind celebrates Meet the Blind Month every October.

Throughout the month, we spread the message that blind people can live the lives we want by conducting a variety of outreach activities. Many of these activities center on White Cane Awareness Day, which is October 15.


These activities also create opportunities for sighted people to meet blind people in their communities, and to recognize that we are vital, contributing members of society.


The Columbia chapter of the National Federation of the Blind of SC had our 3rd annual Step it up Walk for the meet the blind month on Saturday, October 27, 2018. This event was held at the Drew Wellness Center outside track located at 2101 Walker Solomon Way, Columbia, SC.
