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. We are honored to once again have a team as part of the Blindfold Challenge at the BAA 5K on Saturday, April 19th. 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 National Braille Press and other Massachusetts organizations that provide rehabilitation, education and technology for individuals who are blind or visually impaired. 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.
