Saturday, October 1st:  White Cane Flash Mob

TVI, Trina Boyd-Pratt, invites all parents and kids with canes to join with
her students for a video taping of a white cane flash mob.  The flash mob
will take place in conjunction with the Foundation for Fighting Blindness 5k
walk in City Park.  Trina says, “We will be meeting at Denver City Park,
around 11 am at the Martin Luther King Statue located just north of 17th Ave
on Esplanade Street.  We will practice some of the moves before video taping
since we will not be able to meet as a whole group beforehand.  We will be
using the song "More" from Usher. We hope to have it edited and will put it
out on Youtube for White Cane Day, October 15th. I look forward to seeing a
bunch of white canes there.”
