Many Special Thanks
Disney VoluntEARS, Adam Flower and Jennifer Santillan, at Destination-Independence 5K Walk

Blind Children's Learning Center is so grateful for Disney VoluntEARS who donate their time at the annual Destination-Independence 5K Walk. This year, Adam Flowers, a stage manager in Candy Production at the Disneyland Resort, was named the VoluntEAR of the Year. As part of his recognition, Adam chose the Center to receive a $2,500 charitable contribution from the Walt Disney Company.

"Centers like yours are near and dear to my heart, as my nephew is visually impaired," said Adam. "I have seen him struggle through his young life but one thing that has set him up to succeed is centers like yours and the programs they offer. Each child deserves a fair chance at a great life, and because of centers like yours, they will have that opportunity."
