Every October, Blindness Awareness Month brings a heightened focus on the blind and visually impaired community and the realities of living without sight. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “everyone, if they live long enough, will experience at least one eye condition in their lifetime.” The WHO estimates that almost 285 million people suffer from blindness or visual impairment worldwide. In the United States about 4 million Americans are blind and 47,000 (1 person every minute) become blind each year.
Often times, vision loss happens as we get older. As we age, we may develop conditions such as cataracts or macular degeneration. Most people who have visual impairments start losing their sight at around 50 and it gradually deteriorates. Of course, it is important to have regular eye exams to make sure your eyes are healthy! Being proactive and spotting an issues early is very important.
While many people think of blindness as a complete loss of sight, there is a wide range of sight within the community, ranging from a low impairment to complete blindness. What the visually impaired community has in common is that their vision is not fixable by typical means such as glasses. Regardless of their level of impairment, each and every one of these individuals matter, and are capable of living incredible lives. As we as a society continue to progress, we need to keep these individuals in mind to make sure that everyone is included.
Join us for an afternoon of Health and Wellness on Kings Highway from Haddon Avenue to Tanner Street. The heart of the Downtown business district is the perfect place to connect residents with preventative & integrative practitioners, resources, and services provided by Cooper, Virtua, and the Camden County Health Department of Health & Human Services as well as local wellness and fitness studios and businesses. A sensory zone for children will be at Library Point featuring; Camden County Chickens and Therapy Hens, Story Time, arts and crafts from Play at Art, and much more!
The Camden County stage will be set up on Kings Highway & Tanner and will feature live fitness instructors so be sure to bring your active wear and sneakers.
All money raised by sponsorships and race fees goes to local area charities benefitting those with visual impairments and blindness. Our service club does not keep any proceeds for ourselves or the organizing of events. Please know that we understand what a difficult time it has been with the pandemic and we sympathize with the struggles area businesses have faced since March of 2020. We too have wrestled with these challenges in trying to provide for those who need our services and funding.
We are planning to make this run an annual event and hope that in addition to raising money, it will expose more people to the Haddonfield area and bring more business into Haddonfield and nearby towns.
