Join your friends from Pilates 1901 as we support CCVI’s Trolley Run on Sunday, April 30th!


The Cause:

twins pod_0The Trolley Run is the largest annual fundraiser for the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired. All funds raised from the race go toward critical programming at the center.

Since 1952, CCVI (the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired) has prepared young children who are blind or visually impaired, including those with multiple disabilities, to reach their highest potential in the sighted world. We provides a comprehensive program for children, birth through school age,  including highly-specialized instruction, therapies and family education.

The Infant Program provides  regularly scheduled home-based instruction and therapy and Center-based evaluations of the infant’s developmental progress. Preschool and kindergarten classes at the Center continue the child’s preparation for entry into the public or private school systems. Speech, occupational, physical and aquatic therapy, braille instruction, orientation and mobility, and low vision training are additional services available.


The Run

WHEN: April 30, 2017, 7:45 a.m. We run (or walk) rain or shine!

WHERE: Race starts at 75th and Wornall and concludes on the Country Club Plaza.  (basically downhill to food!)

WHO: Trolley Run is operated by CCVI and a dedicated team of volunteers. The dollars raised from this race go directly back to CCVI to support programming.
