TESTIMONIALS

  • Guide runners are my eyes. I trust them, as they tell me everything I need to know along our path. I am a visually impaired runner, a happy runner, and someday soon… A marathon runner.

    Jessica Loomer
    VI Runner
    Phoenix, AZ
  • Without a guide, I could only run slowly and cautiously. I could not keep up with other runners. With a guide, I can run a faster pace. I can join group runs and run competitively in races. I can challenge my athletic ability. This opens up a new world of possibilities!
    Joyce Cron
    Visually Impaired Runner
  • “Guides have given me the opportunity to fulfill my passion of running, for without their kindness there would be no running. They have also provided me with encouragement, motivation, and inspiration to push myself beyond what I thought I could do, and without those guides, I would never have had the opportunity to run a great marathon like Boston!”

  • “I love to run, and my guides make it possible.”

  • Guiding a blind triathlete opened my eyes to a whole new dimension in the sport of triathlon.  Learning to work together and be that much more attentive on the course has helped me view racing personally in a whole new light. I was very apprehensive about guiding at first, but the VI athlete was so gracious and helpful to me that I felt like he was the one doing most of the helping in the end.
