Blind and Sighted together around Lake Merritt

Would you like to be involved in true community integration? Would you also like to have fun and get some exercise at the same time? If yes, join us for the 5K (3 miles) walk around Lake Merritt this Sunday, April 23, 2017. Partners In Sight connects blind and sighted runners and walkers. We will walk around Lake Meritt. There are snacks and water available. We are still looking for volunteers to make this exciting event even better.

The race starts at 9 am, at Adams Point. Every finisher gets a medal! You can walk or run, and you can do 10K or 15K if you want a longer race. Download the PDF Flier
