There is nothing like organized integrated sports activities to help blind and visually impaired persons be a part of a team, get out and see the country, meet people, and of course, keep fit. The Center sponsors the Canvelo biking club as well as the dragon-boat rowing team, . News has just come in that the Canvelo team placed 2nd out 11 teams in today's competition! The team, comprised of blind and sighted rowers, has practiced synchronizing their rowing efforts and teamwork and deserves the honors they received in today's competition! The team uses a drum to synchronize the rowers and keeping the boat going is a true expression of teamwork. The photo shows the Canvelo dragon-boats in the first heat of the race.
