World Access for the Blind and USC Physical Therapy come together for Mountain Biking with the Blind!

Our team is from the University of Southern California's Physical Therapy Program. As (soon to be) physical therapists, we are striving to become movement specialists. One of our roles in the health professions is to help individuals move... our goal is to help individuals of all ability levels move better, faster, stronger and longer. In this event we will be mountain biking alongside the blind to achieve one goal. Our goal is to raise awareness and funds to support the World Access for the Blind's mobility and sports programs for blind youth.

Mountain Biking with the Blind is in celebration of World Access for the Blind's 10th anniversary. They have a No Limits Philosophy and believe that the blind are capable of anything - even mountain biking!

World Access for the Blind is a Non-Profit organization whose mission is to facilitate the self-directed achievement of blind people. They are a team of dedicated staff who lead by example - as they are blind themselves! They travel the world teaching FlashSonar (echolocation), mobility, and life skills to other blind youth and adults. World Access for the Blind is known for their No Limits attitude, as they do not settle for the minimum requirements of functioning, but instead reach for the limits beyond their limits. Their work has been featured on ABC, BBC, Discovery Channel, and many other international publications. In addition, their group of completely-blind mountain bikers has been featured in MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION and Psychology Today.
