EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
The 2015 will mark my third year racing the Boston Marathon as a member of Team With A Vision. I'm thrilled to be returning to Boston to race alongside Ellen, Charles, Alison, and Brad, the same guides who ran with me this summer as I trekked 46 miles rim to rim to rim across the Grand Canyon and back.
For the last 22 years members of Team With A Vision have toed the starting line on Marathon Monday and shown the world that 'disability' does not mean 'inability.'
The international team of blind and sighted runners race 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.
