Eugene K., Braille Institute student, shares his personal and courageous orientation & mobility story in the video above where he is walking down a city street sidewalk with white cane. “I can do this triathalon which I did in 2020, I can ride a bike again, I can even jump in a pool and swim down these lanes…after my O&M training.”
