Mission Statement

Blind Start of America is an award winning 501(c)3 non-profit organization, who's passion is bringing together sighted and visually impaired people through exciting athletic and social events like Dragon Boat Racing and the Blind Mud Run. Our mission is to provide scholarships for blind and visually impaired persons (VIPs) to develop job skills to enable them to ultimately lead lives of independence. These scholarships provide education, training, communication, transportation, adaptive equipment and technology.


We raise awareness and money for visually impaired individuals. We do this by participating in marathons, dragon boat races, and mud runs.

Would you recommend Blind Start of America?

Great company! As a volunteer. They train you for intuit quickbooks. It is easy work, but some things are will require assistant. This is a great opportunity for people who want to gain experience or get their foot in the door and help out a non-profit organization.
