Christina, aka. "Turbo", is Shawn's stoker. She is outgoing and very chatty, but has limited access to fun stuff. This is our second year as a tandem team and for Cycling for Sight. We ride about twice a month with the Blind Stoker's Club. Christina, as a developmentally disabled, middle aged adult who lives with her parents, has been blind since birth. After outgrowing the Center for the Blind, the Braille Institute fills up many of her days. Cycling, for her, has given her a new enthusiasm for life. She has purpose and goals now. Turbo says she's been lacking these for a long time. It has been quite a struggle for her to learn the mechanics of the bike and get in shape to do the club rides. We are still not the fastest team, but there are no more tears during the rides. 

Past donations have given her much needed gear including padded cycling shorts, cycling shoes, and a helmet that fits. These costly items would have been out of reach for her without donations like yours. 

Your tax deductible donation will stay in San Diego, to provide training and counseling to blind and vision-impaired (BVI) adults, like Christina, in the region. A portion of each dollar will enable more BVI people to enjoy the simple pleasures of riding a bike. You can help build independence in living, and also foster team relationships in sport.
