EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
On April 17th I will be attempting my 3rd Boston Marathon with the help of Achilles International, Team With A Vision and the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. These organizations help give complete and full access to races around the country, provide funding for programs that provide health and wellness and allow me to pursue my passion of running even on the biggest stage, The Boston Marathon. I have been very fortunate to have access to these organizations and I now I am asking you to help support their mission by donating to my Team With A Vision fundraiser page benefiting The Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Below is some more information about these amazing organizations.
Thank you for your support,
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!
