Route 66 Ride for Braille Literacy Pit Stop Party

August 31, 2023 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

The background of the image is a map with roads and lines coming every direction. And then a giant Route 66 sign. on top there is a red faded bubble with white letters that reads, "Route 66 Ride for Braille Literacy Pit Stop Party. Thursday August 31. 4PM - 6PM." There is a second red banner below it with white print that reads "for more information visit www.nfb.org/route66." Below that banner is a logo in the left-hand corner that is a multi colored star with National Federation of the Blind below it, and then "live the life you want" below it. In the bottom right hand corner is the Kirkwood Public Library logo with a red image of the library and in black print next to it "Kirkwood Public Library. Discover More."

Dan O’Rourke has been an on-ice official for the National Hockey League (NHL) since 1999.  After growing up watching his blind father defeat all obstacles in his path, Dan wants to give back to the organization that further empowers blind people to live the lives they want.  In partnership with the National Federation of the Blind to raise awareness for braille literacy Dan is riding a bicycle from Santa Monica, California, to Chicago, Illinois, along the famous Route 66.

National Federation of the Blind will have games and STEM activities with braille on display, get your name written in braille, enter a raffle to win an official autographed NHL game puck, meet members of the St. Louis Blues Blind Hockey Club and much much more.
