BENEFITING: BLIND START OF AMERICA
ORGANIZER: Blind Start
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
Friends and Family,
For me BLINDSTART started out as just a day that I was going to volunteer with my kids and now this charity has become part of our family. My kids and I first volunteered at the BLINDSTART dragon boat practice. We went through a guide training where we were blindfolded and and guided around the beach by someone we just met. The experience was humbling and has truly opened my eyes. My family now enjoys volunteering on the weekends by helping those that are blind and visullay impaired prepare for dragon boat races. We don't look at it as volunteering anymore...now we go just to help and hang out with friends.
Join my family and me as we try to bridge the gap between the blind and the sighted. Your donation will help blind and visually impaired people particpate in events like the Long Beach Marathon and Dragon Boat races as well receive education scholarships and adaptive equipment.
