A 5K Run/Walk to support people who are Deaf-Blind
SUNDAY, April 26th 2020
Please join us, RAIN or SHINE, for a 5K Run/Walk through beautiful Sands Point, Long Island, as we raise funds for programs and services that benefit people who have a combined vision and hearing loss.
LOCATION: Sands Point Preserve, 127 Middle Neck Road, Sands Point, NY
• T-shirt • Refreshments (Register by April 10th to guarantee T-shirt size. T-shirts are not guaranteed
for same-day registration.)
Individuals of all ages and disabilities are welcome to participate. Participants under 18 years of age must
have waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.
The funds raised by Helen’s Run/Walk 2020 will be dedicated to providing Support Service Providers (SSPs) for staff and students at HKNC. SSPs are specially trained individuals who provide visual and auditory information, human guide support and access to communication for people who are deaf-blind which enables them to actively participate in everyday life, access their environments and make informed decisions. Examples of SSP services include providing information to deaf-blind teachers about what a student is doing during class or providing access to transportation, human guide support and environmental information when attending a conference. Having an SSP empowers deaf-blind individuals to live, work and thrive in their community of choice.
HKNC, a registered 501©(3) non-profit organization, is a national leader in services for people who have a combined vision and hearing loss. With your sponsorship, HKNC will continue to offer a rich variety of innovative programs and services for people who are deaf-blind as they seek to attain their own definition of success and independence.
Register now and HKNC will be well on the way to achieving its goal of raising $70,000!
Thank you for your support!
