RUN FOR SIGHT | 5K RUN | 5K WALK
Helping people with blindness or severe low vision thrive in a sighted world.
Think about your day and all that you do… checking your alarm in the morning, reading your mail, preparing meals. The list goes on. Now, picture doing these activities with limited or no vision.
On Saturday, September 3, the West Michigan community is invited to participate in the 11th Annual Run For Sight. The Run for Sight is a 5K Run/Walk along beautiful Lake Michigan with the goal of raising funds to support vision rehabilitation services for individuals living with severe vision impairment.
Shoreline Vision is partnering with the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABVI) to create this fun event. Our unique 5K run/walk takes place, along beautiful Lake Michigan at Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon. The visually stunning course will be shared with friends who are visually impaired.
Last year ABVI assisted over 1,000 family members, friends, and neighbours who live with blindness or visual impairment. And for over 100 years, the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired has been helping people with severe vision live with dignity, independence, and opportunity.
The 11th Annual Run for Sight takes place on Saturday, September 3. Registration begins at 7:00 AM in the parking lot between the Coast Guard building and Margaret Drake Elliot Park. The run and walk start at 8:30 AM. The 5K Run is competitive. The 5K Walk is family and dog friendly, but please keep your dog on a leash and clean up after your pet. Parking is available near the Coast Guard Station.
Entry fees are $25 for the 5K Run and $20 for the 5K Walk. These are non-refundable and sincerely appreciated. Commemorative shirts will be given on a first come first served basis to the first 300 people who register. You can register online at www.goracego.com.
