TESTIMONIALS

  • “The impact and difference volunteer sighted guides have made in my life allow me to enjoy the freedom to train and run outdoors, participate in events, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. From each experience, a unique friendship forms, reminding me that the possibilities ahead are endless, as long as I take that first step forward!”

  • 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!

  • Since going blind, I've looked for a way to push myself physically while staying safe. About a half-mile into my first run with a guide I knew I'd found it! I've gained speed an endurance like anyone who has trained, but more importantly, I've found a greater confidence in and respect for myself.

  • "Running for a cause has put new meaning into running. If you're a runner, you know what it means to feel the wind in your face, and hear your shoes hit the ground. Guiding a visually impaired runner shares the freedom running brings. Your eyes are all a visually impaired runner needs. Sharing the Boston Marathon with a visually impaired runner is one of the highlights of my running career. It wasn't about what I could do for her, but what she did for me. I'll never forget it.”

  • “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!”
