TESTIMONIALS

  • Having run close to 40 marathons, things were getting a bit stale. Being able to participate as a guide absolutely reinvigorated my passion to run.  I am now able to enjoy the sport I love more than ever, while making it possible for a visually impaired athlete to do the same. WIN-WIN.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • “Guiding takes the "self" out of racing and makes it the ultimate team effort. I have been a triathlete for 15 years and none of the races I have completed as an individual compare to the feeling I get when I cross the finish line with a visually impaired athlete. There is nothing better than knowing that you helped another person accomplish his or her goal.”

  • The idea that I could help someone while doing something that's also good for myself physically and mentally seemed like a no brainer, heck why aren't more people doing it!
