HOLLADAY — The third annual Walk with the Blind 5K run is slated for Saturday, Sept. 15 at Holladay Lions Park, 1616 S. Murray-Holladay Road.

Harmons grocery stores, the Utah Lions Clubs Foundation and the Utah Foundation for the Blind hope to raise $10,000 to support several sight preservation programs in the state.

The event kicks off with the 5K race at 8 a.m. Day-of-race registration is $30 and participants will receive a pancake breakfast and a T-shirt. Preregistration is $25. The breakfast begins at 9 a.m. and costs $5 for adults and $3 for children for those not participating in the race.

The community is also invited to take an escorted nature walk in the park while blindfolded or to guide a sightless person through the Walk with the Blind course. Registration for the walk is $10.

Registration is available online for all the events at www.walkwiththeblind.org or at the event.

The family event will also include a clown, face painting, live music and educational booths. For more information call event organizer Nick Wadsworth at 801-660-0180 or email wadsnich@gmail.com.
