One thought on “ViStars, Inc.

  1. I think a support group for athletes who are blind and want to be involved in high school or community sports is wonderful.
    I was wondering if anything prompted the making of the club. Has anyone in your organization had any problems with high schools not being welcoming or coaches unwilling to coach an athlete? If so what did they do about it?
    I live in eugene Oregon, and I’m doing a study on what non-profits have done for advocating for blind athletes in the school system. I’d really appreciate any information anyone can give me. I know I’m not in your area but discrimination doesn’t pay attention to state lines, and neither does advocacy. If anyone has any information feel free to e-mail me.
