Join #teamlight at the Bucharest Marathon!
Our mission is to support blind and deaf people in Romania to be able to live independent, fulfilled lives. There are 100,000 blind people and 40,000 deaf people and we need your help to support them!
Light into Europe was founded in 1986, initially establishing the Air Ambulance before moving on to work with visually and hearing impaired people from 2004 onwards, supporting them through:
- Raising & Training Guide Dogs for the Blind
- Orientation & Mobility Training for Blind people
- Big Print and tactile textbooks for students in schools for the blind
- Independent living skills for blind and deaf young people
- Romanian Sign Language training and advocacy
All the money you raise by running for Team Light will go directly to support our work with our beneficiaries. All our services including our Guide Dogs are provided to blind people who need them free of charge, so money that you raise will go towards the costs of training and keeping them fit and healthy!
We believe in ability not disability and truly believe our services can be life changing to those who access them, so we want to tell the whole of Romania about the talents of Blind and Deaf people and with your help by running in the Bucharest Marathon for Light into Europe we can!
