David Kuhn

2014, Ron Hering Awards

“To be an ambassador from my world of the blind and visually impaired to the world of the fully sighted. To demonstrate patience and understanding with a sense of humor to that world that just cannot fully know mine, and often fears it.”  

David Kuhn, a 62-year-old blind grandfather of four, is running 11,000 miles around the perimeter states of the USA to raise awareness and fund for his 12 year old granddaughter, Kylie, who has cystic fibrosis. His epic journey requires sighted running/walking guides, and he is actively recruiting support for his cause and the 1 in 29 people who carry the cystic fibrosis gene.
