Deborah Conley - Volunteer Extraordinaire for the Blind Community donates over 400 hours per year for the development of sports for endurance blind athletes. She speaks to blind organizations and parents of blind children about the benefits of participating in athletics and how to help their children within the public school system. She personally guides blind athletes in the Boulder and Denver area and designed blind running and swimming tethers for them when she discovered these products were not available. In 2011 and 2012, Conley was the race director for all the blind runners at the Cherry Creek Sneak 5K run. In 2012 she registered 18 blind runners & 23 guide runners; the largest field of blind runners ever in any major U.S. road race to date. She is also the President and Founder of Lending Sight, a USABA (United States Association of Blind Athletes) Sport Club that offers guiding and running training at no charge to visually impaired individuals of all ages and abilities.
