BENEFITING: Seeing Eye, Inc.

EVENT: Seeing Eye Gran Fondo 2014

EVENT DATE: Sep 07, 2014

THE STORY:

On September 7th, a few of us are pushing our legs to participate in the Gran Fondo, a bike ride that begins in Morristown, NJ. Some will be first timers and others will be going to new lengths (literally), including some who will be riding 62 miles. We have decided to simultaneously put our legs to good use by fundraising for The Seeing Eye. For those of us who aren’t riding, we’ll be volunteering for the event by helping The Seeing Eye educate the bikers about the organization.

This past year, Annabelle got quite involved with The Seeing Eye through her Brownie Troop, and has become passionate about the organization. She and her troopmates raised $1,000 for The Seeing Eye though their various efforts and initiatives (http://www.nj.com/independentpress/index.ssf/2014/06/franklin_school_brownies_wrap.html). In her continuing efforts to contribute, she will be one of the people on our team volunteering at The Seeing Eye rest stop located along the ride.

The Seeing Eye is the oldest guide dog school in the world. People who are blind or visually impaired come to Morristown from all over in order to train with a Seeing Eye dog, and these people all share one thing in common: they are motivated by a desire for increased independence, dignity, and self-confidence through the use of Seeing Eye dogs. Watching what these dogs can do for these individuals is nothing short of inspirational.

Our goal is to try and match – or hopefully exceed – her Troop’s donation of $1000! Any amount donated is greatly appreciated. All the money we raise will go directly to The Seeing Eye. Regardless of whether you donate, we thank you for taking the time to read this and learn a little about what we’re doing!!
