Continuing with May’s theme of Healthy Vision Month, we all should make an effort to get moving. The team at Del Negro & Senft enjoys being active, especially for a worthy cause. We supported the 11th Annual Run/Walk for the Blind, aka the Sandy Hook Lighthouse 5k, organized by the Eatontown Lions Club and The Jersey Shore Running Club on May 7th. This event was organized to benefit New Jersey Blind Citizen’s Association and Camp Happiness, whose mission is “to enhance the quality of life for the blind and visually impaired through education, socialization, and fostering an environment of hope and purpose.”
Always lovable, dogs and puppies in training – along with their handlers from The Seeing Eye – attended this event to offer educational information and to highlight what they do best: train and ready their fosters to be the perfect guide dogs for those with visual impairments.
A week after this 5k, Drs. Shah and Wiedeman were more than ready to conquer the Sandy Hook 10k on May 15th, after training for over a month. Both were happy with their times – a major accomplishment!
Coming off of a holiday weekend where we all enjoyed BBQs, picnics, and meals on the go and finished up with a favorite dessert, it is important to remember to keep moving. Do what works for you – sign up for a walk with a cause, a class, or park farther away from your destination. Your eyes and body will thank you!
