EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
On April 20, 2015, I will be running the Boston Marathon for the first time! The Boston Marathon is the world's oldest and most prestegious race, and I am excited to be racing as a member of the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired's Team With A Vision.
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 team's international roster 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.
