To achieve these goals, we provide youth with free books which feature characters that mirror the likeness of themselves, a free and healthy breakfast, positive role models, plenty of hugs & encouragement and an increased knowledge of their rich culture and history. Volunteers help set up, give out food, and break down the event.

Metro Washington Association of Blind Athletes: Organization of blind athletes and their sighted peers who believe that recreational and competitive sports opportunities should be open to everyone, regardless of their ability to see.

Our mission also includes teaching blind athletes the physical techniques and body movements that they may not have had a chance to learn through physical education classes.
