Raising Awareness

Severe visual impairments have never stopped us from chasing our dreams. Now we have our sights set on a new goal. We hope to raise awareness globally about the abilities of the sight-impaired and to inspire people everywhere to chase after their own dreams.

The Ride

In December 2011, we'll fly down to Ushuaia, Argentina to start an 18-month journey across roughly 16,000 miles and 15 countries on a tandem bike, ultimately completing our adventure in Deadhorse, Alaska.

The Plan

We'll visit schools for the blind along the way to share and to relate experiences that have shaped our lives. We'll use this website to document our activities. Follow along and connect with the blind communities in the Americas.
