WHAT IS Lions White Cane and a Scooter Cannonball Rally?

The rally originates in Vancouver, British Columbia on September 9th, and ends in Portland, Maine on September 18th. The length of the rally is divided into ten, approximately equal lengths. Each of the daily routes is divided into four, approximately equal lengths. It is my intent to update this blog each night with progress and digital images along the way.

One of the motivators for my participation in this rally is to provide some publicity for the Lions White Cane projects.  Those projects include the Tennessee District 12-O Lions Eyebank and Sight Service in Chattanooga, the Tennessee School for the Blind in Nashville, and the extensive training and supply of Leader Dogs.  Additionally, White Cane also funds Lions World Services, the Tennessee School for the Deaf, as well as recordings for the blind and dyslexic in Oak Ridge.

It is hoped that my participation in this rally will serve as a fundraising RALLY for these exemplary charitable services in my home base of Dayton in Rhea County, Tennessee.  My “relation” to the Lions is that I am a third term Secretary for the Dayton Lions Club, and this year, I am a first term Treasurer for the Lions District 12-O.

I leave here with my ZUMA (YAMAHA scooter) in the back of my truck on September 2nd, and I hope to post along the way to Vancouver.
