sight night Calgary 2018 is set to take place on Saturday, November 17th! Please join us once again in lighting up the night along the Bow River Pathway for the Eighth Annual Calgary sight night, presented by Flaman Fitness! This year’s event offers a 5K or 8K run or a 3K run or walk; where sighted and visually impaired participants will light up the night together with their “sight night lights” and enthusiasm as they raise awareness, support and funding for Alberta’s visually impaired athletes.

We encourage you to sign up as an individual or as a team and tell your friends, family and co-workers about this unique run/walk experience.

There will be hot chocolate and snacks provided for all participants at the finish line!

We are Pleased to Announce our Sight Night Calgary’s Honorary Chair, Shabu Hussein!

Shabu became blind at 17 years old. Since then he has persevered and never stopped achieving. He accepted the challenge to lead a “normal” life and had to face many difficulties to reach his goals. Shabu has been known for having a no-excuse mentality and has never allowed his visual impairment to stop him from achieving anything he puts his mind to. Shabu has been active his whole life and has been involved in many activities through ASRAB including: hiking, golfing, biking and dancing. Shabu was the first blind person to climb to the base camp of Mount Everest! Shabu’s philosophy in life is that he is not disabled, but differently-abled! Shabu has been married to a very supportive spouse, Shaida, for the past 26 years and he enjoys doing many of ASRAB’s activities with her. We’re proud to call him our Honorary Chair this year! Please join Shabu and ASRAB at our fun run after dark, sight night Calgary 2018!

Together, let’s make sight night 2018 a shining success!
