About the event

Join the National Federation of the Blind of Colorado for the second annual 6 Dot Dash. The 6 Dot Dash is 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.
