About The Carroll Center for the Blind's 5K and Walk for INDEPENDENCE


This year there are even more ways to show your support. You can do the Walk for INDEPENDENCE 1 or 3 mile traditional walk or run a 5K. The registration process is still the same. Create a team, join a team or register to walk or run as an individual -- however you choose to participate, you are making an impact. You can pick your own route, walk or run at your own pace, and when you start. Encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to join you and together we can make a difference. To celebrate, we will hold a virtual Zoom on Sunday, April 25th!


Since starting in 2013, the Walk for INDEPENDENCE has raised over $978,000 for individuals of all ages and all stages of vision loss. It has grown and spread awareness throughout Newton, Massachusetts, the United States, and the world! Funds raised make it possible for The Carroll Center for the Blind to transform lives. Join members of the community, local businesses, and even family dogs and support our mission. You are helping us continue to serve clients of all ages and all stages of vision loss achieve their own independence and learn the skills they need to succeed. Join us in making a difference.
