The Power of the “Runner” Community

A few weeks ago, we got an introductory email from the National Federation of the Blind of Massachusetts (@NFBMA) asking if our platform could be used to help the visually impaired with everyday tasks such as reading, house chores, or trips to the store.  Of course it can, and this week we had a member ask for help going to a fish market in the North End where she has never been before.

This use of the platform really shows how powerful connecting communities can be- we call it “service networking.” We can’t wait to find more great uses for RUNmyERRAND so keep the stories coming!

Happy Running,

Rylan
