6 Dot Dash CO
Registration for the fifth annual 6 Dot Dash is now OPEN!
#comerunwithus September 9th, 2023 starting at 9:00am
The National Federation of the Blind of Colorado 6 Dot Dash presented by Comcast is an annual 5k event to raise awareness and funds for the National Federation of the Blind of Colorado/Colorado Center for the Blind. Your support helps provide Braille literacy and blindness skills training, scholarships for deserving blind students, summer camps for blind children, and more. The National Federation of the Blind of Colorado works on local, state and national levels “to achieve widespread emotional acceptance and intellectual understanding that the real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight but the misconceptions and lack of information which exist.”
