National Federation of the Blind Announcement: 

Registration is now open for the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) DOT DASH 8K!

Form a team with family and friends, or run solo through a great 8K course that starts at the NFB Jernigan Institute and goes through Locust Point and Fort McHenry before finishing back at the NFB. All proceeds from the race will go to the NFB, a national nonprofit based in Baltimore.

Headquartered at 200 East Wells Street in South Baltimore, the NFB is the largest and oldest organization of blind people in the United States. With over fifty thousand members, we have affiliates in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and seven hundred local chapters. Our mission is the full integration of blind Americans into society on a basis of equality. To achieve our goal we conduct innovative programs that empower blind people of all ages and provide them with the necessary skills to compete with their sighted peers in the classroom, on the job, and in the community.

Help us to change what it means to be blind and make the hopes and dreams of blind Americans a reality by running or walking the DOT DASH 8K!
