Ride For Sight 2014 ~ Register NOW!!!

December 20th, 2013 @   -  13 Comments

We ARE BACK with the fourth edition of “Ride for Sight” to be held on 13th April 2014 at Straits Quay once again. We are planning a more challenging route of 25 km approximately that runs through some of the most scenic part of Georgetown. We are aiming to have, 1500 cyclists participating in RFS 2014, as against last year’s 1200. The theme for 2014 is “Step Up — Be the difference”.

This year, we want everyone to step up to the challenge of riding for and with the blind and visually impaired. We want the community to join us in our efforts to break free from the general perception that the blind are incapable of succeeding in life. Through the ride, we want the community to step up in assisting us in providing a platform for the BVI trainees to step up for their rights to be treated as equal as their sighted peers.

Registration for Ride for Sight 2014 will starts from 2 January 2014 until 20 March 2014. With the increase popularity of Ride for Sight, we do expect registration to be brisk so please register early to avoid disappointment.

We encourage more of our VI friends from all over Malaysia to come and join us for this incredible event for free! With your participation, we can demonstrate to all that with a little help, vision impairment is not a barrier to living life to the fullest. Please contact our office directly for more details on VI participation.

Let’s show Malaysia and the world what can be achieved when people who cares, be it from the community, corporate citizens, local and state government, come together in partnership to build a more inclusive and caring society. Let’s change the outdated mindset that vision-impaired are less than capable and somehow do not deserve the expectation to be successful. Let’s look at our vision-impaired friends and see them as equal participant and contributor in our community. Let’s STEP UP and be the catalyst for change; let’s BE THE DIFFERENCE!
