BENEFITING: Perkins School For The Blind
EVENT: San Francisco Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Jul 26, 2015
The Perkins School for the Blind is an incredible organization that empowers the blind, deaf, and disabled. It was the first school founded to aid the visually impaired and taught amazing people like Helen Keller.
I was first introduced to the work of the Perkins School during my freshman year in high school at St. George's. My swim team would compete in an annual meet against the Perkins students where our team would duct tape our goggles and swim blind alongside students of all ages.
The school provides amazing professionals and facilities that allow blind and deaf children to realize their potential. The Perkins School not only emphasizes education, but the school also values physical education and athletics. Their students are an inspiration and prove that any disability can be overcome.
Please donate and help the Perkins School for the Blind continue to improve the lives of blind, deaf, and disabled children!
