Brookline – APRIL 16, 2012 – Team With a Vision members swept the Boston Marathon Visually Impaired Division this year: teammates Aaron Scheidies took first place in the men's category with a time of 2:55:53, former winner and returning contender Adrian Broca ranked second with 3:20:54, and Jennifer Herring won women's first place with 4:46:14.

This year Team With A Vision competed in the marathon for its 19th year to raise awareness and funds for the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (MAB). The Team With A Vision joins both sighted and blind athletes who run the marathon, demonstrating the capabilities of people with vision loss. For years TWAV team members have consistently placed in the top positions of the Boston Marathon’s Visually Impaired Division.

“These visually impaired athletes show that losing your sight doesn’t have to keep you from leading full and meaningful lives,” MAB CEO Barbara Salisbury says.

So far the 15-member Team With A Vision has raised nearly $60,000 this year to support the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

ABOUT MAB:
The Massachusetts Association for the Blind (MAB) has been creating opportunities for people with disabilities since 1903. Our experience allows us to forge strong community partnerships to meet the pressing need for high quality services and transform lives. www.mabcommunity.org
