About the walk

Are you in?

The mission of the inaugural Everybody In! Walk/Move for Perkins is to build a more inclusive, accessible world of opportunities for all people. While we know people with disabilities are capable of so much, barriers to true inclusion persist in our society. 

Join us on Saturday, October 2 at Perkins School for the Blind and help build a world that sees people with disabilities for what they can do, not what they can’t. Together, we can work to eliminate stigma, change attitudes and invite people of all abilities to fully participate in their communities.

Not local? No problem, we have a virtual option for those who cannot attend in-person. Registration is $10 for in-person and virtual attendees.

Join us on campus

Our inaugural walk begins at our historic, picturesque Perkins campus and runs alongside the Charles River and through Watertown’s Braille Trail in support of disability inclusion. 

At the finish line, enjoy a festival of activities like historical campus tours, children’s activities, musical performances and more.
