  • INTRODUCTION

    Stride for Sight is a unique event for all ages and abilities, with blind, blindfolded and sighted runners competing together. The event will help fund the comprehensive programs at the Foundation for Blind Children. The event features a timed 5K run and a 1-mile walk (wheelchair accessible).

  • BLINDFOLD CHALLENGE

    For those looking for adventure, the Blindfold Challenge is an opportunity to compete in the 5K run blindfolded with a sighted guide. Running blindfolded takes competition to a whole new level and is sure to be a life-changing experience! The Blindfold Challenge will help participants understand what anyone with vision impairment already knows—being blind won’t hold you back, you don’t need your eyes to see what’s inside you, and fear is the only disability. You provide your own sighted guide and sign up as a team.
