Organised by the Petaling Jaya Lions Club, this is the 5th Blind Leading the Blind Annual Charity Walk.

Public are encouraged to join in this event together with their family members to experience what it is like living in a world of total darkness. There will be 100 blind participants from the Malaysia Association of Blind (MAB)

The event takes off at 7.30am on Sunday, March 11,2007 at the PJ Civic Centre Car Park. Participants can opt to walk blindfolded with a blind person or a sighted friend in a group for better crowd control. The 3km walk from Jalan Yong Shook Lin to Persiaran Barat, Jalan Timur, Jalan Pantai, Jalan Gasing, Jalan Changai and back to Jalan Yong Shook Lin is sponsored by Asia Insurance and American Home Assurance Company Malaysia.

Participants who complete the walk will be entitled to a Lucky Draw with gifts including a 29in colour T.V.

The Club hopes to raise RM150,000 from the fun walk, which will be channelled to various blind associations and also to help sponsor treatment for those poor cataract patients from the outskirts and villages.

While we are counting the blessings of having healthy eye sight, lets not forget to help those who suffer in darkness.
