Did you know that the LightHouse is not only a place where great ideas come together, but also where great athletes come together, as well?
Many of our blind and visually impaired staff, friends and supporters are or have been competitive athletes. Donor Relations Coordinator, Lisamaria Martinez, was a Judo competitor on the national stage. Our new Blind Leaders Enrichment Specialist, Brandon Young, is a Goalball Paralympian. And our former Director of Public Policy and Information, Jessie Lorenz, was also a member of the U.S. Paralympic Goalball team. Transition Employment Coordinator Arlena Winn played Division I basketball. And several of our LightHouse Board members are avid cyclists, competing in races like Cycle for Sight and the BORP Revolution.
Speaking of BORP and LightHouse athletes, this weekend, the LightHouse will compete in BORP’s Annual Invitational Goalball Tournament. Our four-member team is looking forward to a day of healthy competition and fun. We hope that you’ll come out and support Team LightHouse at the James Kenney Recreation Center, 1720 8th St, Berkeley, CA 94710.
