Try your hand at bowling without your vision! In this unique event, you will bowl your frames while wearing a blindfold.
New Vision for Independence joins agencies across the country in celebrating National Blind Sports Day. Coordinating organization United States Association of Blind Athletes believes that “sports opportunities allow people who are blind and visually impaired to develop independence through competition, without unnecessary restrictions. Like sighted people, the blind can share in the thrill of victory and the reality of defeat.”
COST: $15 per person OR $50 per team of 4 – visually impaired individuals can register/play for free!
