Oxfordshire Association for the Blind
We are delighted to be associated with the 2014 Oxford Half Marathon as one of the Race Charities.
Oxfordshire Association for the Blind (OAB) is a small charity that aims to help, in a personal and professional way, every visually impaired person in the county to come to terms with the impact of sight loss and to remain as active and independent as possible.
OAB was first established in Oxfordshire in 1877 and today we support over 4,000 visually impaired adults and children, and their carers, across the county. We provide a counselling service, training sessions in IT and daily living skills, specialist equipment, information and advice and social and educational opportunities for people to remain active and independent. For more information on our work please visit our website. We work closely with the local authority and John Radcliffe Eye Hospital to ensure all our services supplement statutory provision. We have a small staff team and any of our services are provided with the help of over 100 volunteers.
Run for Oxfordshire Association for the Blind
We have entered a team in the Oxford Half Marathon every year since it began. This year we are hoping to increase the number of people running for us, and would be delighted if you would consider joining our team and running for us in 2014.
As part of our team you will receive a fundraising pack, fundraising support, an OAB running vest and the chance to meet with us on race day.
