THE STORY:

Since being born with retinitis pigmentosa, Joyce’s vision has been slowly, but progressively decreasing, including her peripheral vision. In 1987, Joyce was declared legally blind and had been working in computers before she became a stay-at-home mother to her 2 children, both active in sports and music.

Joyce, who has lived in Acton for 18 years, has been a runner since her high school years in Setauket, New York. An avid bicyclist most her life, Joyce was part of the Boston-based bicycle club Charles River Wheelmen, and was also a windsurfer before she had children.

This will be Joyce’s third time racing Boston, returning with her sighted guide Rebecca Tracshel! Joyce is excited to be racing Boston again, and toeing the line with her teammates!

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!
