EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
This spring I'll be running the 117th Boston Marathon as a member of Team With A Vision! I ran with the team last year, and raised $9,823 to support the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired!
2013 marks Team With A Vision's 20th anniversary of joining sighted (that's me!), blind, and visually impaired runners, to support a statewide network of vision rehabilitation services, support groups, and one-on-one volunteer matches that MABVI provides for blind and visually impaired individuals across Massachusetts. The majority of MABVI’s clients are low income elders who are experiencing vision loss for the first time and do not have any adaptive strategies for independent living. Vision rehabilitation services, low vision clinics, 33 support groups, and 1:1 volunteer matches help elders learn compensatory strategies and receive the peer and volunteer support they need to live with dignity and independence.
I'll do the running and you do the donating, and together we can help MABVI continue to provide services to those in need.
