Raising Expectations "Live the Life You Want" Walk-a-Thon
Sat, April 22, 2017, 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM CDT
The Raising Expectations “Live the Life You Want" Walk-a-Thon will assist local blind consumers in changing what it means to be blind by providing the opportunity to attend state and national conventions.
NFBA of Mobile’s fundraising goal of $5,000 will be used to send blind individuals to annual state and national conventions where they will be introduced to blindness related technology, seek job opportunities, become informed on current legislation, and network with other successful blind proffessionals just to name a few. Participant and sponsor registrations begins at 8:00 AM and the walkathon starts at 9:00 AM. Come walk at your own pace and complete as many laps as you can. Prizes will be given for top pledge raisers, most laps completed, youngest walker, and oldest walker. Pre-registration/registration table will be located on the University of South Alabama campus next to the SGA pavilion. Informational tables will be set up for supporters to view and for members and volunteers to distribute water and other items. After the walk-a-Thon is over we will have a post race party with a DJ, keynote speaker, lunch, and presentation of awards
