What is supported by the money raised at this event?
CRE Outreach is a charity partner of the LA Marathon to raise funds for our signature program, “Theatre by the Blind.” Our program helps visually impaired youth, teen, and adult participants become empowered actors that push the limits of their disability through the dynamic medium of theatre. Our adult performing group is the only entirely blind adult theatre troupe in the country that creates and performs original theatrical works. Theatre by the Blind provides participants with a constructive and creative forum to confront their challenges while informing the public, raising awareness, and challenging popular misconceptions about the capabilities of the blind.
