LightHouse Launches Guide Athlete Program

Sometimes all it takes to get people moving is a good partnership! The LightHouse is excited to announce the launch of our new Guide Athlete Program. We want to pair blind athletes with those with vision, for a wide variety of athletic endeavors – anything from working out at the gym to biking in the upcoming Cycle for Sight Fundraiser to running the next half marathon.

We got off to a fantastic start during the Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Half Marathon, where we staffed a table and collected the names of 30 people interested in volunteering for this program.

If you are interested in becoming a guide athlete, or being paired with one, contact LightHouse Volunteer Coordinator Don M. Franklin at 415-694-7371 or
