Trevor and Tennille are heading out this morning on the first leg of the 500 mile Colorado Trail. You can follow their trek on the map in this post or at blindhikertrevorthomas.com.
June 18 pre-hike interview on Denver NBC station: which we shared at the top of the post.
The team will be hiking to raise money & awareness for his charity, Team FarSight Foundation, Inc., which Trevor founded in 2014. Its mission is to empower blind children & youth through the development of hiking & other backcountry programs. The goal is to teach participants problem-solving skills & give them the confidence they will need to be both productive & competitive in all aspects of their lives.Additionally, the foundation is working to break down barriers between the sighted & blind communities and to challenge societal misconceptions of the abilities of the blind.
