19 VIDBE-Q Volume 63 Issue 3 Holli Luff Steve Pawlowski Director of Communications and Business Development Foundation for Blind Children spawlowski@seeitourway.org 2018 marked the seventh year of the Foundation for Blind Children's Stride for Sight fundraiser. Held at G.R. Herberger Park in Phoenix, Arizona, this year's event saw a record number of participants (557) and revenue (more than $66,000), all benefitting the life-changing programs at the Foundation for Blind Children. Stride for Sight is a unique event for all ages and abilities – including visually impaired and sighted runners. It features a timed (competitive or recreational) 5k and a relaxed one-mile walk. The optional Blindfold Challenge separates this event from every other race in the valley and takes competition to a new level. Runners looking for adventure could step up their game by competing in the 5k blindfolded with a sighted guide. They're invited to run the entire route blindfolded or trade roles halfway through to get a taste of the challenge from both sides.
