Nearly a hundred participants took part in the walk, with representatives of the Blind Foundation as well as guide dogs walking together to raise funds for charity.

In its tenth year, the annual event is organized by volunteers of the Ahmadiyya Community, with a 100% of the funds raised passed on to the charities. This year the walk raised over $10,500 which will be split between the Blind Foundation and the Humanity First Intl. charities.

Speaking at the event, Theresa Liebenberg of the Blind Foundation praised the community’s contribution in not just raising funds for the charity, but also towards changing the commonly held misconceptions about the Islamic faith.

The Community’s spokesman, Dr Nadeem Ahmad, thanked all the participants and the many volunteers who had worked tirelessly in the background to make the event a success. The walk was followed by a barbeque lunch sponsored by Mike Pero New Zealand, and its representative Mr Sheikhil Khan gave out special prizes to the individuals with the highest pledge amounts.
