Christian Record Services Inc. hosted the fourth-annual EYE RUN on Oct. 2, 2016, at Holmes Lake Park in Lincoln, Nebraska. Each year, the EYE RUN offers opportunities for children, adults, and families to walk or run, discover healthy lifestyle choices, and learn about supportive services for individuals who are blind.
The total 2016 EYE RUN walker/runner count from all locations was 215. Among this number were participants from nine states as well as 22 members of the Gothenburg Seventh-day Adventist Church in Nebraska, which hosted its own satellite EYE RUN.
“Thanks to the participants and sponsors who partnered with us for this annual event,” stated Diane Thurber, Christian Record president. “We were pleased with the response and appreciative of the strong commitment to promoting awareness and a healthy lifestyle.”
Proceeds from this annual event help fund Christian Record’s programs and services for people who are blind.
