National Blind Sports Week presented by Healthy Vision Association is right around the corner! Throughout the week of October 3-8, USABA will host a celebration promoting fitness in Americans with visual impairments and showcasing the abilities, opportunities and awareness of sports for the blind.
Sport and fitness activities have the power to provide people who are blind and visually impaired with the framework to set goals, build work ethic and live a healthier lifestyle. Studies have shown that blind and visually impaired individuals who are involved in sport and fitness live a higher-quality life and are twice as likely to find employment. Check our National Blind Sports Week schedule below for a list of events you can take part in.
Then join us during the week of October 3-8 to find an activity you love and show the world that sport and recreation are for everyone.
