IN-SIGHT: The Unseen Road

IN-SIGHT: The Unseen Road (Part I)    |    EN VUE: La Route Invisible (Partie I) 

On February 27th, on behalf of Fondation Amal, I will be running the Rockapulco  1/2 marathon in New York, completely blindfolded, to raise awareness for kids with visual impairments. To truly gain insight into the lives of these special needs children, Collin will be my guide acting as my "eyes" throughout the race, helping steer me safely across the finish line while using verbal and physical cues. 

Want to know why we're really doing this? Listen to our personal stories below!

In our 1st cross-border (USA-Canada) collaboration, Fondation Amal has partnered with the Make-A-Wish® Metro New York  and Make-A-Wish® / Rêves d'enfants Canada chapters, to raise funds for their wish program. COVID-19 has disrupted our lives globally, however, wish kids with visual impairments are especially at risk as their special needs' requirements do not stop for the pandemic, making them among the most vulnerable in our community. Now more than ever, these kids need our help! 



We would be humbled if you would consider supporting us in raising $10k+ to support wishes for children with visual impairments in both New York & Quebec. 100% of proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish® Metro New York and Make-A-Wish® / Rêves d'enfants Canada chapters.

Every child with special needs, disabilities and chronic illness deserves to live an inclusive and fulfilling life. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to these kids for inspiring us and keeping Fondation Amal's vision alive, and to our family of supporters in allowing us to cross the finish line of the unseen road!
