Bond Bright Program helps visually impaired athletes prepare for 5k run on June 26. June 21, 2019. Bond invites everyone in the Santa Barbara community to help visually impaired Braille athletes prepare for 5k run at Nite Moves 5K on Wednesday, June 26th at 6:30pm, at Leadbetter Beach.
It’s estimated that over 1.3 billion people live with some sort of vision impairment, many right here in our Santa Barbara community. Bond Fitness has partnered with the Santa Barbara Braille Institute, and for the past six weeks, members of Bond Fitness have been volunteering to help guide blind and visually impaired athletes to prepare them to run in the upcoming Nite Moves 5K.
“This has been an incredible experience for both these visually impaired athletes and our members,” said Bond Founder Stephen Stowe. “It has really been life-changing for many of us to recognize the challenges that others face everyday and how small acts of giving, sharing and supporting can not only empower someone, but make them feel supported and loved.”
Bond Fitness members have been meeting once every week and spending one to two hours guiding athletes of the Santa Barbara Braille Institute—all at different levels of fitness and capability—but each and every one excited to do their best in the upcoming 5K run.
