TRURO - A man who walked from Springhill to Truro to raise money and awareness for a young child wants to meet Truro and area citizens Saturday.

David Galloway left Springhill on Monday, walking blindfolded with the aid of assistants, to help young Georgia Langille, who has a rare congenital disorder that has left her blind and deaf.

Galloway will meet the Langille family of Truro, whom he is friends with, at the corner of Queen and Lorne streets in Truro at 1:45 p.m.

They will walk to the Cougar Dome behind Cobequid Educational Centre for a community gathering that will last until 3 p.m.

The event, which is open to everyone, will include numerous medical and community resource exhibits, walking opportunities at the Cougar Dome and a chance to meet Galloway and the Langille family.

To learn more about Galloway's walk, look for 'Opening Eyes For Baby Georgia' on Facebook.
