Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization that provides life-changing sports opportunities to over 1,000 individuals of all ages and ability levels who are blind and visually impaired. The mission of NWABA is to provide opportunities for blind and visually impaired persons to become engaged in physical activity and sports. We will provide scholarships and host events to build confidence and physical fitness. The confidence gained from sports will inspire athletes to follow their dreams in life and in sports. The Association was formed by a group of visually impaired students in 2007 to ensure that people who are blind were participating in sports and physical activity.
