20 VIDBE-Q Volume 63 Issue 3 Figure 1. A blindfolded runner and her sighted guide begin the 5k Stride for Sight event. "Out of all the races that benefit non-profits, this one is the most unique and rewarding to be a part of – it's not every day you have the chance to run without your vision," said Spencer Churchill, FBC instructor and Stride for Sight team organizer. This year's event was bigger and better than ever before. It featured food, music, free chair massages, a silent auction, a gourmet coffee truck, a blindfolded obstacle course for kids, and homemade French pastries and bread, courtesy of a family from France who moved to Phoenix just so their child could attend FBC! Participants enjoyed visits from mascots Howler, of the Arizona Coyotes hockey team, and Spirit from the Fiesta Bowl. They also reveled in bidding on an opportunity to throw a snowball at FBC's CEO, Marc Ashton, during next year's Snow Day event!
