This Sunday, April 30, Dr. James Halloran, Dr. Timothy Badwey and Dr. Mark Winston will volunteer as the medical team for the 2017 Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired (CCVI) Trolley Run. The four-mile race, which occurs every year in Kansas City, starts at 75th and Wornall Road, winds through the Waldo and Brookside neighborhoods, and concludes on the Country Club Plaza.
“It is both fun and inspiring to join our community in supporting such a great cause every year,” said Dr. Halloran, who volunteered in the medical tent with Dr. Badwey at the 2016 CCVI Trolley Run. “We are thrilled to be back again this year and joined by Dr. Winston.”
Since 1952, CCVI has helped children who are blind or visually impaired reach their highest potential through programs like speech, occupational, physical and aquatic therapy, as well as braille instruction, orientation and mobility, and low vision training. The Trolley Run is the largest annual fundraiser for CCVI, and all proceeds from the race go toward critical programming at the center.
The Trolley Run has succeeded through the support of individual and corporate sponsors, as well as volunteers. More information about the race and its underlying cause is available online at trolleyrun.org.
