Due to the current Covid-19 situation, the Government's preventive measures and partial school suspension are continuously implemented. To allow more participants to join the event, Hong Kong Blind Union has decided to postpone the coming White Cane Day Carnival to December 2022.

10 visually impaired ambassadors and public participation in Cane-A-thon on 15 October 2022 will remain unchanged.

Thank you for your support and understanding in advance. Details of the event will be announced later.


International White Cane Day

15th October marks the International White Cane Day. The date is set aside to celebrate the achievements of people who are visually impaired.

A white cane enables people with visual impairment to explore the road ahead, and it symbolizes their independent living.

 

Introduction to the “Cane-A-Thon”

Through the celebration of the International White Cane Day, Hong Kong Blind Union aims to raise public awareness of visual impairment and provide an equal and independent environment for the visually impaired in society.

We believe that the visually impaired are givers instead of receivers. They are capable of serving and realising their dreams.

 

Details – Please support Us:

  1. 10 visually impaired ambassadors
    Walk 10.15km independently at 10:15a.m. on 15th October 2022 to showcase their independence in the community
  2. Public Participation
    Donate $200 with a record of 10,150 steps walked between 10-15th October 2022, to redeem a drink prepared by visually impaired barista at our social enterprise YAU CAFE on International White Cane Day.
