Five Reasons to Support the 6 Dot Dash

  1. NFB BELL (Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning) Academy – A two week program that provides blind children initial or advanced Braille instruction in fun, interactive ways. The program will be held in over 40 locations all throughout the country this summer.
  2. NFB Free White Cane Program – Any blind individual in the United States and Puerto Rico is offered a free white cane every six months because the NFB believes that a cane is a means to independence, safety, and confidence.
  3. NFB EQ –The National Federation of the Blind Engineering Quotient (EQ) program is a weeklong summer engineering program for blind and low-vision teens from around the country. NFB EQ is a jam-packed week of fun and learning. Throughout the week, participants will forge new friendships while increasing their engineering knowledge, problem-solving abilities, self-confidence, and independence.
  4. NFB-NEWSLINE® – A free digital talking newspaper/magazine service that has over 400 publications, TV listings, weather alerts, job listings, and much more. The service can be used over the telephone, computer, iPhone app, or email. The freedom to read what you want, when you want, and where you want, so that you can live the life you want!

About the 6 Dot Dash

The 6 Dot Dash is an annual 6K race that is organized by the National Federation of the Blind (NFB). The goal of the event is to raise funds that are used to support our programs that help blind people live the lives they want.

About the National Federation of the Blind

The NFB is the largest organized group of blind people in the nation. Since 1940, we have been helping blind people live the lives they want through education, advocacy, training, and services, because we know that blindness is not the characteristic that defines blind people or their futures. Your participation and donations go a long way toward furthering our mission.
