BENEFITING: National Braille Press, Inc.

EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013

THE STORY:

 

Team National Braille Press will run thousands of miles in preparation for April 15, where they will run 26.2 miles; from Hopkinton to Boston! 

Why?  To give the gift of literacy to blind children and adults.  Imagine if the only way you could learn was through listening; never being able to see how a word is spelled, where punctuation goes, sharing the experience of reading a story, or being able to write your thoughts down.

National Braille Press believes that reading is not a privilege, but  a right.  Our marathon runners are raising money so that NBP can produce children’s books like Curious George, Diary of A Wimpy Kid in braille with tactile graphics; bank statements, restaurant menus, college textbooks, and high school science and math books. 

 

Your support of our runners will give the gift of literacy to thousands of blind children and adults.  Thank you for believing that every blind child and adult should learn to read and write.
