This year, students and staff from the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind invited the general public to Acacia Park, in downtown Colorado Springs, for a White Cane Day celebration and rally. During this event, the CSDB Bulldog Band performed songs, including original music honoring the white cane. Celebrating the achievements and contributions of those who are blind or visually impaired, students and keynote speaker, Marty Rahn, delivered motivational speeches to the crowd.
White Cane Day is a highly anticipated event, at CSDB, because of the opportunity it represents to interact with the public and explain the importance of the white cane. Every year, more people come to Acacia Park to eat their lunches and listen to the Bulldog Band.
