BWBF is looking for supporters to take part in a new fundraiser later this year – which will be the first of its kind in the world.

BWBF has the chance to take part in what will be the world’s first disability-led push/run.

Parallel London will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in the capital on Sunday, September 4th.

It’s designed to bring everyone together and be accessible to all so participants can walk, run or wheel their way around the course – choosing to complete either the 100m, 1km, 5km or 10km route.

The event is open to everybody, and anyone who needs to bring a guide to help them round the track is welcome to do so. This includes guide dogs.

It’s for people of all ages and abilities and there are no cut-off times – participants can take as long as they need to complete the course.

On the day there will also be a family festival at the venue, with food and drink, art and culture and technology.

BWBF has the opportunity to take out some places for people to join in with Parallel London on our behalf – raising both awareness and much needed funds for us.

We would ask for a minimum of £100 sponsorship so we can cover the cost of the places and raise a bit extra too.

If you or anyone you know would like to join in – please get in touch with us as we want to gauge the level of interest before we commit to taking out the places.

To find out more or if you would like to get involved, contact our new fundraiser Julie Hocking at julieh@blind.org.uk
