This Friday, March 18th, 2016, we invite you to join us for the Blind Mile Run to experience your senses and reality perception on a different level. It is a very unique activity that allows you (being blindfolded) to run and work in pair with a seeing partner, who will be guiding your throughout your first Blind Mile (approx. 1609.34 meters) walk or run. You will be able to learn and experience how scent, sounds, wind, temperature and textures convey the characteristics of daily environments become a new dimension. At Blind Mile Run a reversal of roles is created: people who will be blindfolded will be confronted with the sudden withdrawal of their key-sense sight and are taken out of their familiar environment. And you will switch with your partner, so that everyone will be able to experience how it is to be blind in real life. The Blind Mile Run will allow you to attune to your deeper inner awareness and different perception of reality. With this activity our mission is to facilitate social inclusion of blind and disabled people on a global basis. We aim at provoking a change of perspective for the participant, and support employment for blind and visually impaired people around the world. Come with your partner or we will assign you with someone. PS: Please bring your own scarf or a blindfold (only eye covering and be creative )
