Thank you to everyone who participated in the Junior Blind Olympics, including our athletes, volunteers, friends and sponsors!
The Junior Blind Olympics was created so that children who are blind or visually impaired could defy expectations and experience a true sense of achievement. Last Saturday, May 4th, that's exactly what happened. Athletes, ages 6 to 19, competed for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in Olympics-style competitions, including:
- Long Jump
- Shot Put
- Tandem Cycling (New!)
- Climbing Wall
- Judo (New!)
- 50-yard Dash
More than 1,000 athletes, families, friends and volunteers traveled from throughout California, Arizona and Utah to attend this inspirational event.
Junior Blind and the Optimist Blind Youth Association are grateful for your support of the Junior Blind Olympics. We hope to see you again next year!
