The National Federation of the Blind of Colorado and the Colorado Center for the Blind are partnering again for our 2nd 6 Dot Dash 5k, June 29! Our first year was a big success with 191 runners (and/or walkers) and netting more than $5000 for our Braille literacy and scholarship programs. Not bad for the first lap! Besides, it was a lot of fun.
This year is shaping up to be even bigger and better, with more kid activities, local food vendors, live music and more beer, just to name a few of this year’s additions.… Read the rest “Run, Walk or Donate to the 2019 #6DotDashCO to Support Braille Literacy #ComeRunwithUs”

We want to bring your attention to an exciting event taking place here at the Colorado Center for the Blind on Sunday, June 24.
At least, it will start and finish at the Center, because it is the national Federation of the Blind of Colorado’s first 6 Dot Dash 5K, and we invite you to register and walk, run or roll! Funds raised go to the NFB of Colorado, the organization that founded the Colorado Center for the Blind and whose fund-raising kept the doors of the CCB open for many years afterward.

We will also be doing some grilling and enjoying some great food.
If you want a burger or a dog, you gotta RSVP here.… Read the rest “Celebrate Spring with FAST Friday Fun & Games May 11!”
