You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back. Douglas Hall believed in our philosophy and his wish was for all blind individuals in his community to become fit and active and receive the skills to reach their full potential. We will celebrate his life and legacy during this event. Come show your support one step at a time! Registration for the Douglas C.
