October 6 Date Allows Organizations to Become Involved
Mark Your Calendar – National Blind Sports Day is October 6, 2018!
Join hundreds of people across the country in promoting fitness in Americans with visual impairments!
Sports and fitness provide framework to set goals, build work ethic and live a healthier lifestyle. The goal of National Blind Sports Day is to celebrate the abilities of and opportunities available to Americans with visual impairments and increase awareness of sports for the blind.
How to get involved –
Check the constantly updating list of events happening across the nation during the week of October 1-7, 2018 for an event happening near you! If there isn’t an event happening near you, simply get moving on October 6th and post about it on social media using #BlindSportsDay. You can also RSVP on the Facebook event to connect with people across the country who will be participating.
Some ideas: Walk or jog around your neighborhood with family and friends, coordinate an NBSD dedicated practice for your sports team, do your daily workout routine, try a new sport or fitness activity at your local gym or sports center!
If you are associated with an organization or agency serving the blind in your community, encourage them to host a NBSD event! Organizations can register to host an event here.
We want to make this the first of many National Blind Sports Days with the dream of one day turning it into International Blind Sports Day but we can only do that with your support. Please mark your calendars and join us by participating in a sport or fitness activity on Saturday, October 6, 2018!
