In 2013, the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired's Team With A Vision, was joined by William Greer, a legally blind long-distance runner and founder of Cinema Touching Disability in Austin, Texas. William had worked hard to qualify for the 2013 Boston Marathon and his efforts were rewarded. William, a fan of the NPR quiz show, "Wait...Wait... Don't Tell Me," was certainly surprised when he contacted MABVI regarding a talking running watch to assist him in the Boston Marathon and we instead matched him with Peter Sagal, host of his favorite NPR radio show!

Guided by Peter Sagal, William completed the 2013 Boston Marathon in 4:03:54.

In this Cinema Touching Disability original short, William and his celebrity sighted guide -- Peter Sagal, and Williams wife -- Ellen Whittier give you a play by play of the moments leading up to the 2013 Boston Marathon as well as their account of the tragic April 15, 2013 bombing.

"26.2: Austin to Boston" premiered at the tenth annual Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival on November 1-2 at the Alamo Drafthouse Village in Austin, TX. To learn more about CTD, please visit: http://www.txdisabilities.org/.

The Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired is a MAB Community Services program.
