Some kids can’t see Easter Eggs very well, if at all, but they can still be a part of the fun tradition of an Easter Egg Hunt. Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) announced today that they will be hosting the 5th Annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for children who are visually impaired.
This event will take place on Saturday, April 13th at the Washington School for the Blind (Old Main Building 2214 E. 13th St. Vancouver, WA).
Activities begin at 10:00 am and will include meeting the Easter Bunny, a beeping Easter egg hunt, and tandem cycling. This is free and open to all families with a child who has a visual impairment, but registration is required.
“We are very excited to host our 5th annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for children who are blind and visually impaired in our community. With a simple adaptation, children who are blind and visually impaired have the opportunity to participate in this holiday tradition, and we are so happy that NWABA can help provide these types of experiences for families. ” said Founder and Executive Director Billy Henry.

The mission of Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) is to provide life-changing opportunities through sports and physical activity to individuals who are blind and visually impaired. A group of visually impaired students formed the Association in 2007 to ensure that people who are blind were participating in sports and physical activity. Today, NWABA is a rapidly expanding charitable organization that provides more than 1,500 children, youth, adults and military veterans with visual impairments tailored programming, which improves self-confidence and self-esteem, promotes independence, creates an inclusive community of supporters, and builds the skills necessary to succeed in all areas of life including school and employment.
