Learn How You Can Change the Lives of the Blind and Visually Impaired by Running a Half Marathon

The LightHouse for the Blind is the largest organization serving the blind and visually impaired in Northern California. We have a responsibility to change the lives of those who are blind and visually impaired so that the dream of being employed, going to school and having a family does not remain just a dream but becomes a reality.

One of our oldest programs is our Enchanted Hills Camp and retreat. Nestled in the hills of Napa, Enchanted Hills is a scenic getaway where blind and visually impaired youth and adults have come to canoe, hike, horseback ride, and meet new and old friends who all share a common bond. For 60 years, this camp has aided in the personal growth of many individuals.

At the LightHouse, we believe our Enchanted Hills Camp as well as our programs and services can help put blind and visually impaired people on the road to achieving their own personal success. We need your help to keep all of our programs thriving.

Your commitment to fundraise and run, walk or jog the San Francisco half marathon will help enrich, foster and create new and exciting programs and services that can change the lives of people living with visual impairments, and keep our current programs flourishing.

Join today and change someone’s life.
