The Seeing Eye, Inc. is a great organization and are very worthy of your donation. Thank you for checking out this event. I am thrilled to once again be a part of Gran Fondo NJ. This will be my third year riding for The Seeing Eye Foundation!
The Seeing Eye, Inc. is the oldest existing dog guide school in the world. Twelve times a year, as many as 24 students at a time visit the Morristown, N.J. campus to discover the exhilarating experience of traveling with a Seeing Eye® dog.
Their students – people who are blind or visually impaired – come from all over the United States and Canada to spend up to a month training with a new Seeing Eye® dog. They range in age from 16 to senior citizens, their home environments may be rural or urban, and they may be homemakers, volunteers, or judges. But they all have this in common: They are motivated by a sense of independence and armed with the knowledge that Seeing Eye® dogs will provide an extra edge to attain success, however they may choose to define it.
Please consider making a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated!
Update 1 - 7/29/14: Have started getting a couple rides in within the past month (more than last year). This year I will have two important riders with me. AWESOME!!
