NorCal Initiative

United in Stride is partnering with Richard Hunter to serve as a regional mentor in Northern California for those with vision impairments who want to use power walking, jogging, and running to improve their fitness.

While there are a small handful of opportunities nationally for VI marathoners and triathletes with the resources to travel to destination events to come together in the community, opportunities are nearly nonexistent at the local level.

UIS has found it empowering and inspiring to be part of an event with others with vision impairment. Not only does this experience provide opportunities for camaraderie, the encouragement, networking, and mentoring that takes place is life-changing. By expanding regional events, more VI can experience the benefits of being part of a community and increases the likelihood of ongoing engagement in fitness activities.
