CNIB Night Steps ran last night at Mill Lake Park, helping raise funds for people who are blind or partially sighted.

The Canadian National Institute for the Blind’s (CNIB) Night Steps, a five-kilometre walk under the stars in Abbotsford, raised funds for CNIB’s services, such as learning independent travel using a white cane and empowering Canadians who are blind or partially sighted to travel independently with confidence.

“We’ll be bringing together family, friends, community leaders, as well as individuals who understand the importance of CNIB’s work and who want to help support people who are blind or partially sighted in leading independent, active lives,” said John Mulka, executive director of B.C and Yukon region.

The walk kicked-off with music, a barbecue dinner, local entertainment and prizes.
