CROWDRISING SINCE: Feb 02, 2017
Stuff About Me:

The Blindfold Challenge is a unique opportunity to run a 5K blindfolded with the help of a sighted guide to show solidarity with individuals who are visually impaired. Athletes take the challenge to demonstrate that with the right supports and training, individuals who are blind can accomplish great things. The tether and guide mirror the way athletes who are blind train and run, and illustrate the ways that individuals with vision loss use technology and other supports to live full and active lives.

Blindfold Challenge teams commit to raising at least $1,000. Funds raised support Massachusetts organizations that provide rehabilitation, education and technology for individuals who are blind or visually impaired.

In 2016, we are honored to once again be part of the B.A.A. 5K, taking place on Saturday April 16th in downtown Boston. Show your solidarity and experience the thrill of the challenge. Join today or donate to one of our runners. We guarantee the Blindfold Challenge will change the way you see things.
