Visually impaired students want to share adventures with others

SPRINGFIELD, Mo -- A group for visually impaired students is recruiting new members.
It's called Southwest Kids in Action.

They take monthly excursions to places like Hurts Donuts, scuba diving lessons and even go horseback riding. It's open to students from 8-to-18 years old. The idea is that through the activities the students learn new skills and maybe find new hobbies.

"I like that I get to come her and meet new people... and do new things and I'm hoping that blind people over the world can get an opportunity like this," says Kayia Washington of Southwest Kids in Action.

"We do all sorts of these really cool things that I never thought I could ever do," added Zac Crain.

The program is made possible by Lighthouse for the Blind in St. Louis. We were proud to host them at KY3/KSPR recently.
