Guide runners lead the visually impaired to a new life

文字-A A +A

Most visually impaired people find it challenging to exercise as they would like in sports venues, so when they want to run, they need a guide runner. The guide runners' main job is to lead visually impaired runners in the correct direction and watch out for obstacles or danger.

 

Teams of guide runners around Taiwan provide visually impaired people opportunities to get out of the house and exercise, which also helps them meet new friends. Visually impaired runner Zhang Bo-feng (張伯鋒) suffers from retinopathy, which causes untold inconvenience to his life. However, since he started running, Bo-feng has returned to a regular life and met more like-minded friends. Despite suffering from a chronic illness, it has not affected Bo-feng's passion for running.

陪跑員以繩牽引 視障者跑出新生命

視障者大多難以在運動場所隨心所欲從事運動,所以當他們想跑步時,就需要視障陪跑員的幫忙。陪跑員的主要工作,是替視障跑者指引方向,並在路跑時注意四周變化、保護視障者的人生安全。

 

視障陪跑團集結了熱心的陪跑員,讓許多長期待在家的視障者,有更多接觸人群和運動的機會,視障跑者張伯鋒因視網膜病變造成生活不便。但自從開始跑步後,不僅恢復了規律的生活,也認識了更多志同道合的朋友,即使久病纏身,也不減對跑步的熱情。
