The Cause

For nearly 70 years, the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired has been preparing blind and visually impaired children for success in the sighted world. Trolley Run is the largest annual fundraiser for CCVI. All funds raised from the race go toward critical programming at the center. Donations from the Trolley Run are critical to our success.


To prepare children with visual impairments, including those with multiple disabilities, to reach their highest potential in the sighted world.

Did You Know?

More than 85 percent of what a child learns before the age of five is through vision and incidental learning. Vision provides the motivation to explore one’s environment and to understand one’s position in space, and it is an important avenue of sensation for the acquisition of speech and language. 

Who We Run For

Since 1952, the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired has provided comprehensive programming for blind and visually impaired children, including those with multiple disabilities - from birth through school age - with highly-specialized instruction, therapies, and family education.

The Early Intervention Program provides regularly scheduled home-based instruction and therapy and Center-based evaluations of the infant's developmental progress. Preschool and kindergarten classes at the Center continue the child's preparation for entry into the public or private school systems. Speech, occupational, physical, and aquatic therapy, braille instruction, orientation and mobility, and low vision training are additional services available.

As one of only seven schools in the country who serve children, birth to school age, who are blind or visually impaired, we know our presence in Kansas City makes a difference in many lives. Some families drive more than 100 miles for our services. We strive to help all children who need our services, but this does not come without a cost. The average cost to educate a child at CCVI is $40,000, and all of our students receive financial assistance.
