1st Annual 6 Dot Dash June 24 with Colorado Center for the Blind


Join the National Federation of the Blind of Colorado and the Colorado Center for the Blind for the first annual 6 Dot Dash, a 5K Race to raise awareness and funds for Braille Literacy and blindness skills training. The name “6 Dot Dash” comes from the six dots which make up the Braille cell. A combination of these six dots makes up every letter in the Braille alphabet. For individuals who are blind or low vision, these 6 dots represent literacy, independence, and the opportunity to live the lives we want.

The race will begin at the Colorado Center for the Blind (2233 W. Shepperd Ave. Littleton, CO 80120) and will proceed along the beautiful Mary Carter Greenway. This is an out and back course with lots of great volunteers and a well-stocked aid station. This is a GREAT race with awesome SWAG. Participants will receive an official chip time, technical t-shirt, free finisher photos, a finisher medal, entry to the blind beer tasting, and lots of goodies at the race day expo.

In addition to an awesome 5k and 1-mile fun run, runners can enjoy our race day expo, tours of the Colorado Center for the Blind, and our blind beer tasting. This will be a great event for the whole family!
