Meet Tracy & Marion

After an accident, Tracy knew he needed some help for his safety and independence. He applied to CNIB Guide Dogs. A few months later, he was matched with Marion, a black Labrador Retriever.

“Marion licked my face as soon as she met me," says Tracy. "I just knew that she was going to be a great fit – she has a kind, gentle soul.”

A Perfect Match!

A Great Success Story from Moncton

This Vision Mate pair have been definitely seeing the possibilities this summer! This client and volunteer pair got matched in early June, just over 2 months ago. The original plan was to meet once a week for a couple of hours - to go to the aquatic centre and maybe to the farmer's market once in a while. As a volunteer, Allee would offer sighted assistance to Kim, as needed.

However, what happened was a bit different. They clicked. They started meeting about 5 times a week, and sometimes more. They inspired each other to begin training and went on to complete the Goodlife Fitness 10K. But they didn’t stop there. They are now working together to prepare for the 37th Annual Fredericton Fall Classic in September for a half marathon.

Way to go Allee and Kim! And thank you for reminding us that the possibilities are endless!
