Foresight needs YOUR donation to help keep access to research-supported, transformative programs affordable for blind and low vision individuals. Participation in Foresight's ski program and summer camps builds confidence, independence, and teaches perseverance in blind and low vision individuals.
Foresight's programs do make a difference. The mother of one of our teenage participants sent this email after her son attended summer camp this past June.
"Courtney and I are so filled with gratitude that words don't even come close to expressing how thankful we are for the amazing experience with Foresight Summer Camp last week. Alex CAN'T WAIT for next summer! It brought tears to my eyes watching him overcome his fear during rock climbing and it empowered him more than any other experience he has had recently (if not ever.). We simply can't thank YOU enough and your incredibly passionate, caring staff for hosting Alex. On our way home, he said, "That was the best three days a kid could ever ask for." Your program changes lives!"
~Wendy, mother of Alex, 14-year-old Foresight camper
Adults also experience life-changing moments with Foresight. Jimmy hadn't skied for 14-years, since he began losing his sight. After 5-days skiing with Foresight he had this to say about his experience.
"Foresight teaches you that you can get back to what you had, even though you can't see as well, or at all. I think it shows you that you can do it and not to be afraid, don't be apprehensive. And as the days go by you think, this is the old me almost."
~Jimmy, adult blind skier
