The Insiders: Take a walk to help the visually impaired
At some point or another, we all take our vision for granted. Whether it’s driving to work every day, plopping down on the couch to watch TV – or especially when you get to read all the wonderful articles that appear every week in the Insider.
Just imagine how sad it would be if you couldn’t read all of our cleaver puns and witty leads. We know, it’s not something we like to think about either.
But the reality is that people all over New Hampshire struggle with vision loss, impairment and total blindness on a daily basis. It just so happens that today’s your big chance to help.
The New Hampshire Association for the Blind’s 11th annual 3K Walk for Sight is this morning at 11 a.m., helping to raise much needed funds for the association’s vision rehabilitation program and services for the blind and sight impaired throughout the state.
And it’s not too late to get involved. In addition to being able to check in at 10 a.m., those needing to register can also do the same. The cost is $15, $5 for children 11 and younger.
The day’s festivities will begin and end at the association’s headquarters at 25 Walker St. Prior to the walk, there will be a welcome by President/CEO George Theriault and a stunning rendition of the national anthem, as well as live music and lunch.
For those looking to cross another item off the bucket list, maybe today it will be rowing. It is Learn to Row Day, after all. The Concord Crew will host the event from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. at their boathouse at 15 Loudon Road. And don’t forget to bring a hat, snack and water.
