It's Time to Stampede for VIPS!
Join us for our annual Dr. Mark Lynn & Associates Stampede for VIPS 5K at Bowman Field on Saturday, September 26! This family-friendly event raises funds for Visually Impaired Preschool Services and features a category of race winners specifically celebrating runners who are blind or visually impaired! Each participant in the race will receive a t-shirt and a brailled medal.
This year, there will be a virtual option where participants can choose to walk or run the 1- or 3-mile lengths anywhere and anytime during the month of September. Teams or individuals can even complete the race at one go or over the course of several days. The new virtual option allows participants to protect their health and maintain safety during the pandemic and serves as an alternative for those who are medically fragile. (You don't have to live in Louisville, KY to participate virtually.)
