NESFL is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1977 to promote physical activity for blind and visually impaired participants through adaptive sports. Our mission is to provide a supportive atmosphere where visually impaired participants and sighted guides are paired to access outdoor sports.
We run cross-country skiing and snowshoeing events in the winter and hiking, kayaking, and tandem cycling during the warmer months. Our events range from day trips in the greater Boston area to 2-4 day events throughout New England, including the White Mountains of New Hampshire and the Northeast Kingdom of VT.
We are based in New England, but our community spans the entire US. We pride ourselves on bringing people together in a fun and social environment where we share our passion for sports. Please join us!
