Dear Colleagues:

This is Parnell Diggs, chairman of the National 
Federation of the Blind Imagination 
Fund.  Hundreds of us are preparing to converge 
upon the Daytona International Speedway to 
witness the historic Blind Driver Challenge™ on January 29, 2011.

Now is the time to gear-up for the 2011 Race for 
Independence.  Over the next few days, the 
programs of the National Federation of the Blind 
will generate hundreds of millions of audience 
impressions, and our work will be highlighted in 
communities across America and around the world.

Register for the 2011 Race for Independence by 
There, you can sign up to be an Imaginator, set 
your fundraising goal, and make your asks in what 
may be the biggest and best Imagination Fund campaign yet.

You can also register by calling the National 
Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute at 
(410) 659-9314, extension 2419.  Whether you 
conduct your campaign online, through the mail, 
or in person, we have the tools you need to 
guarantee success with just a little effort.

In fact, some Imaginators have already reached 
and surpassed their fundraising goals, and it's 
only January.  How did they do it?   The secret 
to success lies in two key actions: registering and making the ask.

If you plan to be in Daytona Beach, Washington 
D.C., both, or neither, you need to be registered 
for the Race for Independence.  This is your 
opportunity to help us capitalize on the enormous 
publicity, goodwill, and enthusiasm about the 
programs of the National Federation of the Blind over the next few days.

Fellow Federationists, please join me in building 
the Imagination Fund and supporting Braille 
literacy, quality education, access to 
technology, employment opportunities for blind 
adults, programs for seniors and more.  Come 
on:  sign up today, and let's race!
