A Blindfolded Run to Raise Awareness

On February 27th, we will be introducing our first cross-border (USA-Canada) collaboration, launching  “In-Sight: The Unseen Road – part 1”, a series of events that will help raise awareness for children with visual impairments in support of the Make-A-Wish®/ Rêves d’enfantsMD Canada and Make-A-Wish® Metro New York. (To learn more about our Make-A-Wish Partners, click here).

Our very own foundation president, Sherin Al-Safadi, will be running the Rockapulco half marathon in New York, completely blindfolded!

To truly gain insight into the lives of these special need’s children, Sherin and her guide Collin, who will be acting as her “eyes” throughout the race, aim to help give a voice and platform that empower these special children and help them acknowledge their inner hero!  

To support Part I of this run, we ask that you consider a donation to support Fondation Amal’s journey into the Unseen Road. To be blindfolded is to take a leap into unchartered territory, a path towards insight into the feat of the unsung heroes that motivate our mission. Not only is this a physical challenge, but a mental challenge as well in overcoming physical boundaries, that these wish kids undertake daily.

Support our runners, Sherin and Collin in this incredible endeavour and help us reach our goal to raise $10,000 to support wish kids in both Québec & New York. Together, let us empower these children so they can live their life to the fullest!

Together, let us gain insight into the unseen road by helping us reach our $10K+ goal as we cross the finish line. Perception is reality, let us prove to you that impairments are limitless.
