President’s Message: An Appeal to Participants
Since 1934, the mission of the California Council of the Blind (CCB) is to gain full independence and equality of opportunity for all blind and visually impaired Californians.
CCB is a non-profit tax-exempt organization composed primarily of Californians who are blind or have low vision.
You can assist us in the continued provision of academic and vocational scholarships, crisis intervention, educational opportunities at low cost, 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!
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 people who are blind or visually impaired 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 2014 Mutt Strut.
We reflect the diversity of California.
Donna Pomerantz, President
California Council of the Blind
