Play Without Limits: Adapting Sports & Games for the Blind

September 27, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 pm

You’re Invited to our Play Without Limits: Adapting Sports & Games for the Blind event!
Please join us on Wednesday, September 27 from 9-11 am on the MSU Drill Field. We will host an informational booth with activities ranging from bocce ball, soccer, cornhole, and a human guide demonstration.
Students and other participants will have the chance to watch videos on blind hockey, goalball, and beep baseball to see how people with vision impairments play sports and get active. We will also have a trivia wheel with a chance to win prizes.
We hope that this event will spread awareness, provide educational opportunities, and perhaps spark some interest in students to work in the field of blindness and low vision.
This awareness event aligns with the National Research & Training Center on Blindness & Low Vision’s mission to enhance employment and independent living outcomes for individuals who are blind or have low vision through research, training, education, and dissemination.
In case of rain, we will postpone the event to the following day, September 28
