On behalf of the PARA GUIDE Foundation, thank you to OrthoCarolina for being a tremendous supporter to our blind-visually impaired community. OrthoCarolina generously sponsored five blind-visually impaired athletes (Eric, Joe, Omar, Lee and Marlon) with race entries at the OrthoCarolina 5k/10k Classic on Saturday, August 19, 2017. Through the support of OrthoCarolina’s Blair Primis, Julie Campbell and all of the volunteers at the packet pick-up and event, these five athletes with their Sight by Side guides (Shannon, Tony, Georgia, Will, Evan, Jen, Mary, Jeremy and Paul) safely crossed the finish line and some even set new PRs.
PARA GUIDE could not do what it does without the generous support of the community and sponsors like OrthoCarolina. There are many ways to give back. Please contact PARA GUIDE for details on becoming a guide or to make a cash donation to help sponsor an athlete. Even the smallest amount of time or money can brighten the world just a little.
