About This Activity

Stride for Sight 5K is a unique event for all ages and abilities, with blind and sighted runners competing together. The event will help fund the comprehensive programs at the Foundation for Blind Children. This event will feature a timed 5k and a relaxed 1-mile walk held in Phoenix, with a unique twist known as “The Blindfold Challenge” where you can compete blindfolded with a team member of your choosing as a sighted guide.

Blindfold Challenge: For those looking for adventure, the Blindfold Challenge is an opportunity to compete in the 5k run blindfolded with a sighted guide. Running blindfolded takes competition to a whole new level and is sure to be a life changing experience! Create a 2-person team and compete blindfolded using one another as a sighted guide. Run the entire route blindfolded or run it as the sighted guide, or trade roles halfway through to get a taste of the challenges for each position. Each Teammate must register separately. Blindfolds and tethers will be provided.

CEO Challenge: The CEO Challenge is the challenge of all challenges for Stride for Sight. The CEO Challenge consists of an organizations CEO being guided by an employee of their organization. 50% of the challenge is based on time and 50% is based on the amount of runners the CEO can bring.
