Sponsor a blind or vision-impaired runner in Light The Way 5K at Nationals Park!

Geppetto Catering, Inc. is helping Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind (CLB) to raise funds to help our vision-impaired and blind neighbors right here in the National Capital Area!

Will you sponsor one of our blind or vision-impaired runners to raise needed funds?

We hope you’ll join us, but whether you can be there or not, here’s how you can help:

  1. Support one of the three courageous blind runners to sponsor
  2. Pledge $1, $3, or $5 per kilometer

Tiombé Hurd

Despite losing almost all her vision in her left eye, Tiombé won 6 US Triple Jump championships and made the US Olympic team!

Timothy Hairston

Timothy lost his sight as a teenager but never let it stop him – he works in the Office of Naval Research and he’s been the first blind runner to finish the race  in all 3 previous Light The Way 5Ks!

Charlie Plaskon

Charlie’s a grandfather who began losing his sight in first grade! He’s legally blind. Charlie started running after he retired – marathons and more! His story stars in the movie Victory Over Darkness!

For each kilometer (KM), pledge: $5/KM (that’s up to $25)  $3/KM (that’s up to $15)   $1/KM (that’s up to $5)

Special Prize – One sponsoring family will be chosen to receive a $500 Grocery Certificate from Safeway!
