North Dakota Association of the Blind Holds Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
It may have been a gloomy day, but spirits were high in Minot as people turned out for the 16th annual Walk for Vision.

There are an estimated 18 thousand North Dakotans who are living with some type of vision impairment. To make sure those people have the support and programs they need, the North Dakota Association of the Blind held a fundraiser today. The association offers scholarships, support groups and adjustment seminars for individuals and families dealing with vision loss.
"Often times we hear of people who've been doing quite nicely up until they get to their 40s, 50s, 60s and all of a sudden they find themselves with macular degeneration, or RP, or cataracts, and they need help, and they sometimes don't know where to go to get the help they need," says Doug Stip, North Dakota Association of the Blind.
