ORGANIZER: Connecticut Institute for the Blind
EVENT DATE: Oct 14, 2017
I work with a team that does the Hartford Marathon events each year - people who are blind and do the 5K with their guide dog; people with MS who walk with a friend for support; people who do the entire half marathon in their wheelchair; and people who want to make sure there are quality programs for people with disabilities in donate money, time, or show up to run! I am showing up to run - and I need your help to raise some money for this wonderful, unique program at Oak Hill!
