My amazing sighted triathlon guides and I are training extremely hard and chasing sponsorship to afford this Paralympic dream of mine. The equipment and travel required to race and train on the International Paralympic level is extremely expensive, especially because as a blind athlete, you are responsible for TWO people’s expenses- yours and your guides, with no financial support from the US Team. This is where you can help. Please be a part of that finish line that I see in my mind’s eye. Blindness is NOT an excuse to avoid chasing elite athletics and proudly representing the USA. You don’t need sight to have vision.
