EYE RUN Seeks Sponsors, Participants for 5th Annual Event
Christian Record Services, Inc. (christianrecord.org) is excited to announce early bird registration is open for the 5th annual EYE RUN (www.EYERUN.info), an eye health awareness event and fundraiser which will be held Sunday, October 8 at Holmes Lake Park and many other locations through virtual runners and walkers.
Created to engage the Lincoln community and current and potential clients who are blind, Christian Record held its first event, 5K4Vision EYE RUN, in 2013. Each year, the event has attracted increasing participation from Lincoln and other areas. The 2016 event had a total of 215 runners and walkers. For 2017, the organization hopes the event will draw 300-500 participants. Legally blind walkers or runners and their sighted guides may participate at no cost.
The EYE RUN offers three events for teams and individuals: One Miler Run/Walk, 5K Run/Walk, and 10K Run. In addition to the run/walk, the EYE RUN hosts the Healthy Lifestyle Choice Expo, which includes booths from sponsors and area agencies that offer supportive services to people who are blind.
Early bird registration is open through Sunday, September 3, and general registration is open through event day. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available. Visit www.EYERUN.info to learn more.
