Join the Coast 2 Coast Challenge With United in Stride and Team With A Vision!

During the month of April, join Team with A Vision and United in Stride, programs of the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired for a month-long walking and running distance challenge across the country in an event that will bring us all together and surely get us moving!

Over the course of April’s 30 days, you and your team will be accruing as many active miles as you can, while virtually traversing the country. All participants will have the opportunity to complete the challenge as an individual or as a member of a team with friends and family both near and far.

As part of the Coast 2 Coast Virtual Challenge, we will be raising funds for Team With A Vision and United in Stride. Prizes (and bragging rights) will be awarded to the teams/individuals that record the most mileage in April as well as for the team/individual that raises the most money. So whether you are running fast or walking to enjoy Springtime, plan to reconnect and join us this April!
