President’s Message: An Appeal to Participants

 

For more than 80 years, the mission of the California Council of the Blind (CCB) has been to gain full independence and equality of opportunity for all blind and visually impaired Californians.

CCB is a not-for –profit, 501C (3) tax-exempt organization composed primarily of Californians who are blind or have low vision. We hail from all walks of life; from seniors to students, from teachers to attorneys, from business-persons to psychologists, from volunteers to job-seekers. We also reflect the wonderful diversity of California.

The Mutt Strut gives you the opportunity to assist us in the continued provision of an array of services to persons with vision loss, including academic and vocational scholarships, crisis intervention, educational opportunities, no-interest loans for employment purposes, and peer mentoring and support, in several ways.

Come join us at one of our two Mutt Strut 2K/5K Fun Run/Walk events in the Sacramento and LA County Areas; Register ahead of time and assist in raising funds by creating your own fund-raising page; or support one of our individual participants or teams. We also welcome anyone who wishes to be a “virtual walker!"

Your generosity will allow us the continued ability to share the tools for independence with all Californian's who are blind or visually impaired!

A portion of the proceeds from the Mutt Strut will also be used by City of Hope, one of the foremost medical research institutions in the nation, to conduct cancer prevention and diabetes research.

As the elected president of the California Council of the Blind, please join me in raising funds for the largest grass roots membership organization of persons with vision loss in our great state of California!

We do not receive any government funds. The CCB provides support through membership dues and the generosity of people like you.

Heartfelt thanks for supporting the California Council of the Blind 2015 Mutt Strut!
