March 28, 2018 ─ Concord, NH ─ Future In Sight, formerly known as New Hampshire Association for the Blind, is holding its 15th  Annual Walk for Sight on Saturday, June 2nd in downtown Concord.  Sign up as a Team Captain today and have your family, friends and neighbors join your team to Walk for Sight!

This 3K walk is Future In Sight’s largest fundraiser of the year.  Proceeds from the Walk help the Organization provide vision rehabilitation programs and services to people who are blind and visually impaired in New Hampshire.

The Walk is the state’s largest gathering for awareness, support, and advocacy for people who are blind and visually impaired.  Last year, almost 500 walkers participated.

The 3K Walk for Sight begins at the McGreal Sight Center, the headquarters of Future In Sight located at 25 Walker Street, Concord.  Walkers will travel through downtown Concord with stops at Bicentennial Square and the State House.  Along the route, Walkers can enjoy a cool beverage, listen to a live musical act, and even experience via simulator glasses what it is like to walk Main Street as a visually-impaired person (Future In Sight will help you by providing sighted-guides for this unique experience!)  The Walk concludes back at the McGreal Sight Center where participants can enjoy lunch catered by Tandy’s, face painting, music, and the chance to meet puppies that will one day be seeing-eye dogs, plus many more activities!  Walkers can also purchase tickets for a 50/50 drawing and amazing raffle prizes. A 50/50 raffle drawing and other amazing raffle prizes, including an overnight stay at Mountain View Resort, a family membership to the Mt. Washington Observatory, and gift certificates galore, will be available on the day of the Walk!

Walk for Sight registration begins at 9:00 a.m. June 2nd with the Walk starting promptly at 11:00 a.m.  Participants are encouraged, however, to pre-register online now or by phone at 603-565-2424.  Registration is $20 per walker, $5 for those under 12.  Registration includes an event t-shirt, lunch, and fun activities at the McGreal Sight Center.
