Hello Friends and Family of BaaBaaRa,

This is my 10th Cycling for Sight, and I couldn't be happier to be holding out my bike helmet once again for donations to the San Diego Center for the Blind, a portion of which is returned to the Blind Stokers Club.  I'm doing my best to keep pushing myself so that I can keep up with the amazing cyclists, both sighted and  BVI (blind/visually impaired). This fundraiser is THE big annual fundraiser for San Diego Center for the Blind, which is where you or I would go if we lost our vision as adults.  They have helped so many people adjust to and live happy and productive lives after vision loss, and they rely heavily on donations.  

Please donate to my bucket.  I promise to ride as fast and hard as I can, which won't be as zippy as it was in my first year of doing this, but I am trying!  I believe in this club, I love having friends who are BVI, and marvel at the fact that they can give me awesome directions on the road.  I want to do my bit to chip away at the lack of public awareness that just because somebody can't see, it doesn't mean they can't be a capable employee.  My BVI friends use their other senses and their wits to negotiate a world that is designed for people can see, and the skills they have acquired in order to get around and to find creative solutions are infinitely adaptable to the workplace.  

The big secret is that we will have a total blast riding together, not to mention having the good feelings of doing something positive for San Diego.  Please consider donating to this wonderful cause.
