Guides Help Blind Runners ExcelMany blind and visually impaired individuals take part in the sport of running. However, they often cannot run without support; dogs and human guides help blind runners excel. One instance of this is blind high school freshman Paul Scott and fourth-grader Rebel Hays. The latter helps Scott navigate cross country race courses using a rope. They work together as a team; Scott says that his guide inspires him to run faster.
"I'll admit it's pretty hard, but it's all for Paul. I have to do it for Paul," says Hays.
