Larian Amal Tongkat Putih

About the run

White cane is a stick used by visually impaired people as a mobility tool. By using a white cane, the blind / visually impaired would know the situation around him, whether he is in the usual place or in a new place.

World White Cane Day is celebrated every year on 15 October since 1964 to educate the public about vision problems and how visually impaired people can live and work independently while giving back to the community and to celebrate the achievements of visually impaired people in the world.

Brunei Darussalam National Association of the Blind (BDNAB) also participates in celebrating the World White Cane Day. In this regard, BDNAB is organising a charity project called Larian Amal Tongkat Putih (for the 3rd time) as a way of practicing healthy lifestyle by exercising together with nation’s blind / visually impaired.

The objectives of the event are as follows :-

  1. To raise awareness and promote equality and full participation of the blind and partially sighted in the society.
  2. To provide an opportunity for members of the association in an effort to pursue a healthy lifestyle through exercise with the society.
  3. To foster better relationships among members of the association and also with the runners through the run together.
  4. To get donations from the public and runners for the needs of BDNAB in the future.
  5. Financing members of the association who join any courses, workshops, seminars, conferences, welfare, education and sports held within or outside the country.
