The Boy Scouts in Albany are inviting you to climb to benefit the blind in Southwest Georgia.

Saturday the Chehaw Council of the Boy Scouts of America will host their third annual Wall Climb Fund Raiser at Darton College.

They say anyone can do it. To prove that these are members of the Federation of the Blind's Southwest Georgia Chapter climbing the wall themselves. The money raised goes to education programs.

"So we can network to find out about jobs and technology to keep up with the sighted world.  So this money helps us to be able to continue to educate ourselves," said Blanche Griffin, National Federation of The Blind of S.W. Ga.

Blind Federation Members from Bainbridge and Atlanta are also expected to attend the fundraiser from 10 to 2 Saturday at Darton College.
