EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
For the last four years I have had the honor of coordinating Team With A Vision for the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. In that time I have met many truly amazing athletes who have overcome amazing odds to prove to themselves and countless others that 'disability' does not mean 'inability.'
For the last 22 years our international team of blind and sighted runners have raced to support individuals throughout Massachusetts living with vision loss. Their efforts allow the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired to deliver professional, peer and volunteer support to over 1,100 individuals each year, giving them the support they need to live with dignity and independence.
All funds raised support MABVI's statewide network of vision rehabilitation services, which include 12 low vision clinics, 33 low vision support groups, and 300 volunteers matched 1:1 with blind individuals.
