The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
The National Federation of the Blind of Missouri in partnership with the United States Association of Blind Athletes and the Anthem Foundation has been participating in the National Fitness Challenge. Up until the month of July 2017 our team has consistently come in third place nationally. In July 2017 our team has moved up to second place nationally. Not bad seeing that this is our very first year to participate. Congratulations to every member of the NFB of Missouri's NFC team, way to go!!!
