EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2012
The Blindfold Challenge is a unique opportunity to raise funds and awareness for National Braille Press by running the prestigious BAA 5K blindfolded and assisted by a sighted guide. Runners are connected by a two-foot tether and will run the same course, at the same time, and under the same circumstances as the other runners in the 5K event. This one-of-a-kind event mirrors the experience of many blind athletes who will be competing in the 5K and Boston Marathon the same weekend.
NBP's Vice Chair, David Kennedy and I will be running as a team on April 15th to show support of NBP's mission of braille literacy and in solidarity with our blind and visually impaired friends and colleagues.
