Support Needed for Helen Keller's Run/Walk 5K

Hello SSPs/Interpreters, our events would not be so successful without the assistance of all you SSPs/Interpreters.  This years Camp Dogwood was a HUGE successful because of our phenomenal SSPs!!!  We are hoping you would be willing to not only share this within all your networks but also consider attending as well as volunteers, walkers, runners, sponsors, ANYTHING!! Our goal is to reach 200 runners/walkers, so please come on out! This email is going out to over 200 of you across the state. If you support this community, COME ON OUT!! 


We are hoping that the funds raised will go towards paying for SSP services to be offered in our consumers homes across the state. Your support will ensure that our consumers don't have to wait until camp or conference to get out of their homes and socialize, have fun and make great memories.  Please spread the word! Sign up, come on out..... 


We are reaching out to all our state partners, agencies, organizations and communities seeking your support for this great event! As you know our community is only growing and we need to grow in our delivery of services with this as well. We have received support from the Davidson Deaf Association, NCAD, Sprint Relay, Sorenson, BB&T, Champion, families and others in the area who so far have their logos posted on our run www which is so exciting.  I would love to put your logo up there too!!  


So please consider supporting the first ever Helen’s Run/Walk for NCDBA/HKNC!!


Helen's Run/Walk is coordinated with the North Carolina Deaf-Blind Associates and Helen Keller National Center aiming to collect funds to support programs and services for the growing Deaf-Blind community. 


It's been estimated that there are more than 1 million adults with combined vision and hearing loss in the United States, and a recent study by the Community Research Institute at Molloy College puts the number as high as 2.4 million. Their capabilities and preferences are as diverse as their backgrounds. (
