Boston Marathon 2017
April 18, 2017
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Over the last four years, I lost most of my vision after being diagnosed with a genetic disorder called Stargardt's disease. While all loss is difficult, losing our meaning as valuable members of society can be even harder. I've been trying to convince folks in my home country, India, that there's more to me than what I can see.
In addition to working as an enterpreneur, I travel the world, participate in bike tours and marathons just to remind everyone that the visually impaired share the same aspirations and dreams as everyone else.
Perhaps losing one's sight gives you a whole new vision altogether. Mine is to help society accept the visually impaired as valuable contributing members.
It is a great honor to be fundraising for the MABVI and it will be a great pleasure to participate in my first Boston marathon!
Cheers and happy running!
