A fun run after dark......vision optional
sight night Edmonton
Saturday, September 28, 2013
When the sun goes down on Saturday, September 28, 2013 the light from hundreds of headlamps will bob and weave along the North Saskatchewan River Pathways as enthusiasts and supporters of visually impaired Albertans join in sight night – a fun run after dark. sight night, presented by Flaman Fitness, is more than just another run it is a vision-optional event that raises funds and awareness for the Alberta Sports and Recreation Association for the Blind (ASRAB).
Enthusiastic participants will gather at Telus Field for a 5 km or 8 km run and a 3 km walk on the North Saskatchewan River Pathway and all registrants will receive a high quality headlamp – the sight night light! Visually impaired runners will share the path with sighted runners and the after-dark timing will make it a more even playing field!
sight night Edmonton was initiated by Dean Kozak. Dean has been involved in recreation and competitive sport with ASRAB for many years and participated in four Paralympics winning a Silver medal in the sport of Goalball (Atlanta 1996). Dean’s ultimate desire is to provide blind and visually impaired individuals the same opportunities he had to be active and learn how to compete in a multitude of environments with confidence, competence and poise.
LOOK WHO ELSE IS RUNNING!
Mayor Stephen Mandel and new ASRAB member, new to vision loss, Jason Schmidt. Who is also an employee with our presenting sponsor Flaman Fitness. These two will lead the charge of the light brigade on September 28th – with the Mayor as Jason's guide.
