Virtual Cycle Ride and Marathon for KAB

Two brilliant sporting events that will raise vitally needed funds for Kent Association for the Blind.

The first you may never have heard of and is called ‘The Virtual Cycle Ride’ and is a 24-mile cycle ride (on a route of your choosing over as many days as you want). You can take part as an individual or as a team, on a static bike at the gym, or outside in the park.

 

The second is much more well-known: The London Marathon. We have several bond places that we can offer to interested runners for Team KAB.

So if there are any budding runners or cyclists out there, please visit the website or contact Amy: amy.vdw@kab.org.uk 01622 691357

 

MARATHON RUNNERS WANTED TO RAISE MONEY FOR KENT ASSOCIATION FOR THE BLIND

 

Kent Association for the Blind are looking for people to take part in the 2017 London Marathon and raise vital funds for the charity.

By taking part in this event you are doing something amazing for our charity; not only raising awareness of sight loss but also raising much needed funds for us to be able to continue our work supporting visually impaired people in the local area. The fundraising team is here to support you meet your pledge amount and can offer you fundraising ideas, personalised materials and resources. In the new year we will be organising a runners’ night at our Sight Centre in Maidstone which is a great opportunity to learn more about our work and meet the other runners on Team KAB.

Kent Association for the Blind supports visually impaired people to live independent lives. We work with people of all ages from toddlers and teenagers right through to people in their nineties and beyond. KAB offers a range of services including mobility training, a digital Talking News service, advice and guidance and courses in Assistive Technology. We provide an entirely bespoke service which is tailored to the individual’s needs. We support over 11,000 people across the region and last year we received 2,450 new referrals to our service.
