The Event

Cape Town Society for the Blind (CTSB) is launching its very first fun run/walk this year with a DIFFERENCE!

To coincide with the annual “eye care awareness month” the 5km run/walk will take place on SATURDAY, 06th OCTOBER 2018, at Rondebosch Common Grounds

Rustenberg Girl’s High School kindly collaborated with CTSB by offering their venue to be used for parking and refreshment stations.  

The event is not just an ordinary fundraiser but simultaneously, an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of eye care, the realities of living with low vision and the needs of people who are affected by total blindness. 

The race will kick off at 08h30am, starting point in Campground Road Rondebsoch. Registration at 7h30am. Participants will get the opportunity to run or walk alongside a blind person for the first kilometre. This experience will give sighted people the chance of literally stepping into the shoes of a blind person for a moment in timeThe finishing point will be at Rustenberg Girl’s High where refreshments will be served before and after the race.
