It’s not too late . . .

to sign up for the 2012 Trolley Run!  Join us–and yes, we’ll be there, walking with friends and family–for the nation’s largest timed four-mile run and help the greater Kansas City area’s youngest blind and visually impaired children!

The Sabates Eye Centers Trolley Run, is the largest annual fundraiser for the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired (CCVI).  Since 1952, CCVI has been the only school in the Kansas City area offering specialized instruction and therapies for children birth through school age who are blind and visually impaired, including those with multiple disabilities.

If you’d like to join us this coming Sunday, April 29th, for the 24th Annual Trolley Run, visit, click “Register Here” and follow the instructions provided.  Not even remotely athletic?  Not a problem:  we still need volunteers, both for race-day activities and for pre-race packet preparation and pick up.  You can volunteer by visiting, clicking “Register to Volunteer,” and following the provided instructions.

Not available to join us on the 29th?  Not a problem.  As of this writing, we’re only 2/3 of the way to our goal of raising $500,000 for CCVI; this is CCVI’s largest annual fundraiser, so it’s important for kids like Peanut that we meet this goal.  You can support CCVI (and the Family Team/fundraising team of your choice) by visiting, scrolling down to the bottom of the page, clicking the blue button that says “Donate to a Family Team!,” picking the team of your choice, clicking “Give Now” and following the instructions provided.  By donating today you are directly helping us raise money for the more than 300 visually impaired children like Peanut CCVI serves annually. Every dollar you help us raise will provide vital programs and services so these children will be able to function at their highest potential in the sighted world.
