October is Blindness Awareness Month! The MacKellar team invites the community to “move” in October – whether that means walking, biking, hiking, swimming, or any activity that gets you moving 1 mile (or more) a day, every day – to help raise funds for Leader Dogs for the Blind.
By joining the “Eye Move 4 Leader Dog Fitness Challenge,” you are helping to create a better future for the estimated 285 million people who are blind or visually impaired. Add fun to your challenge by asking friends & family to sponsor your walk for a $1 per mile. Share your stories and progress by using #macstrong and/or #eyemove4LD in your individual posts or to our FB Event Page via MacKellar Promotional Marketing.
30 Miles in 30 Days - $30 (includes free t-shirt, decal/sticker, and shipping)
60 Miles in 30 Days - $60 (includes free t-shirt, knit hat, decal/sticker, and shipping)
90 Miles in 30 Days - $90 (includes free t-shirt, knit hat, On-The-Go Tote, decal/sticker, and shipping)
As a charity, Leader Dogs for the Blind counts on donations to keep their services free to all of their clients. Once you register, a FUNdraising page is automatically created for you that you may share with family, friends, or co-workers. Your FUNdraiser is completely customizable, and you can set your goal for the Challenge.
