My Story

I  started  going  blind  at  eight years  old. Throughout  my childhood,  I  struggled  to  find  team  sports where  I  could  be an  active and  contributing  member. When  I  lost  the last  of  my light  perception  nearly  ten  years  ago, my  world  became  increasingly   restricted and  challenging. Despite  the love  and support  surrounding  me,  I  found  myself  angry  and  depressed. 

 

Then  I  met  Coach Ron Kampff, founder  and  President  of  Websster Challenger  Baseball  and  the  Miracle  Field. Since  that  day,  my  life  has exploded  with unimaginable opportunities  and  possibilities  . We  formed  the  Rochester  Pioneers  beep baseball team for people  living  with  vision loss.  That  grew  into  our  non-profit, the Rochester Area  Blind  Athletes. I  have  discovered  that, in embracing  my  disability and  facing my fears, I  have become  part  of an  incredible  community of  challenged  athletes. I  have  come to see  with 20/20 vision  that my  disability  does  not have  to  limit  my dreams  and that my life   is overflowing  with love  and  joy.

 

Please  consider  contributing  to  the  organization  that helped  resurrect  my  hope and  that  of hundreds  of other differently-abled  kids  in  the  greater  Rochester  area.

About Challenger Miracle Field

Imagine a place where we focus on what makes us alike, not what makes us different. A place where joy and laughter fill the air; where kids and adults play together; where everyone belongs. That place is Challenger Miracle Field of Greater Rochester.
