Nikki Wilson (on behalf of Stevie Jensen)

Stevie Jensen is a blind and deaf athlete who will be competing in the Tauranga Half Marathon and Rotorua Full Marathon and Nikki Wilson is his main running guide.

Stevie received $1,458.50 from the Mazda Foundation to purchase new running gear and a fitness tracker.

Stevie relies entirely on his guides for transport and gear but hopes to be an inspiration and lead the way for other blind people, showing them that being blind and deaf does not stop you from living a healthy and full life.
