The Walkathon is a yearly event to raise funds to supply guide-dogs for the blind, organized in close liaison with l'Ecole Méditerranéene de Chiens-Guides at Biot.
Since 1991, ASEICA, the C.I.V. and 6 or 7 other associated schools have raised funds for over seventeen guide-dogs through the student oriented and educational event. Many of our families have also been 'puppy walkers', educating the future guide-dogs at home during their first year of life.
Through the Walkathon and its associated activities such as demonstrations by the guide-dog school, presentations of the dogs we have funded, meetings with blind people, and in-class work, students are exposed to, and made aware of, all aspects of this disability, and the great value of a guide-dog's role in the life of a blind person. The Walkathon and its accompanying sessions are an educational experience in which students are both physically and mentally involved.
