You get an AWESOME T-SHIRT, a Celebratory Picture Moment at the FINISH LINE (with wild applause), and your first MindsEye Beer.

Not so Early, but Still Worthy $30 --- Due by Monday, May 21st.
Day of Event $40. 

Register Today!

Stay for the After Party until 5:00 PM! 

Marathons are more than a sport or a form of exercise, a passion or a pastime. It’s about identity. So come to ITAP and show us exactly who you are! A new beer will mark each hour to symbolize each Beer Mile of the No Run, Beer Run. Will you be able to make every mile? 2:00 PM? 3:00 PM? 4:00? It's about your identity after all. 

Here's how it works:

1) ITAP picks a brand of beer (usually something local - Boulevard, Schlafly, Civil Life etc) 

2) We invite all of you, your group, friends, family, & supporters to come drink the chosen beers

3) ITAP writes MindsEye a check for 50% of the sales of the chosen beers for the dedicated time frame (by our group or any other customers that are in the bar.)

The NO RUN, BEER RUN is a fun and fantastic way to have some fun and raise some funds with MindsEye. Make plans now to join us! and raise a glass (or two... or three) for our community.

The Ultimate Beepball Tournament

Saturday, July 14th 2018

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Assumption Parish, 4709 Mattis Road, St. Louis 63128

Batter Up!!!

You're invited to join the world’s largest Beepball tournament, held in the one and only St. Louis, MO on Saturday, July 14th at Assumption Parish, 4709 Mattis Rd, St. Louis, MO 63128. 

16 Teams compete for the Ultimate Beepball Champion Title. 

Described by blind athletes as “a dream come true,” Beepball adds a spin on baseball that allows those who are legally blind to compete. There are six innings per game and three outs per inning. Each player is blindfolded – except the pitcher and catcher. It's all about rhythm, timing, and trusting your senses; you must play this game by ear. Players are guided by sound, not sight-- the sound of the beeping ball, buzzing bases, and cues from the pitcher.

The 12th annual MindsEye Ultimate Beepball Tournament is a one-day competition held at Assumption Parish at Mattis Road in South St. Louis County. Proceeds support MindsEye bringing Beepball Demonstrations into public schools for the visually-impaired and blind students throughout the year. 

Final Game estimated to start at 3:30 PM.
