To our members/participants, volunteers, and the community, we hope you stay safe and active responsibly during these challenging times. 

Our Blind Sports NS Annual Charity Auction fund raiser, originally scheduled for April, has been postponed until further notice.

The Scotiabank Bluenose Marathon has been postponed until the weekend of November 6th to 8th. We look forward to givin’ ‘er then!

We know staying physically and mentally healthy by getting active has been more challenging during these unprecedented events, which have us spending more time inside, so we’d like to share a few resources that may help: The home of a complete set of the Eyes-Free Fitness® audio exercise programs. All programs are completely free for your downloading pleasure  — no strings attached. These programs allow you to stretch, strengthen, condition, and tone your body, all without the benefit of eyesight. All of these programs are thoroughly described with extra supplementary audio and text materials, should they be needed.
