Hello family, friends, fellow running enthusiasts…

I have a unique running experience coming up: I am running at sight night on  [Include Date and Location] – a fun run after dark in support of visually impaired Albertans.

Actually sighted runners like me will be sharing the path with blind and visually impaired athletes. The event is organized by the Alberta Sports and Recreation Association for the Blind, to raise funds for continued and expanded programming. The timing after dark makes it a more even playing field!

I have taken the sight night challenge to raise $250 or more in pledges. Please consider helping me by making a secure online donation on my personal sponsorship page [Your Sponsorship Page Link (see above)].

If a lot of people do just a little, we can help this worthy, local organization – and support active living for those who are visually impaired.

Thanks…gotta run!
