THE STORY:

Chris is visually impaired with a condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa and has type 1 Diabetes.  He has certification in personal training and is a food nutrition specialist.  Chris loves being healthy and teaching others about an active and fit lifestyle. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and his two daughters, Julia (11) and SarahKate (9) in Florida.

“I enjoy being around so many others facing similar challenges and being able to challenge myself not only through running but triathlons and Ironman competitions as well,” he says. "If you really want it there's a way to get it.  You just have to find that way and be persistent," Chris Lancaster said.

Chris will be running in his third Boston Marathon, he’s pumped to join the team for another year and reunite with friends!

For the last 24 years members of Team With A Vision have toed the starting line on Marathon Monday and shown the world that with the right support anything is possible.

Our 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 14 low vision clinics, 34 low vision support groups, and 300 volunteers matched 1:1 with blind individuals.

We are honored to be a part of the 2017 Boston Athletic Association Boston Marathon Official Charity Program!
