EVERYONE DESERVES AN OPPORTUNITY
Northwest Association for Blind Athletes believes that everyone should have the opportunity to experience sports and physical activities. For those who are blind or visually impaired, these opportunities are not common. Most children and youth with visual impairments in the U.S. have never participated in sports or a physical activity. They haven’t ridden a bike, ran on the track or even participated in their school’s PE class.
We envision being able to provide life-changing opportunities to people who are blind or visually impaired by expanding our service areas and the types of sports offered, ensuring everyone has access to the resources they need to achieve success. Your support for our programs helps us to reach more athletes and change more lives every year.
