About the National Industries for the Blind

All proceeds from RUN! GEEK! RUN! will go directly to support the National Industries for the Blind.

Despite continued gains in employment, people who are blind remain one of the nation’s greatest untapped labor resources. In fact, nearly 70 percent of working-age Americans who are blind are not employed. This statistic fuels NIB’s mission to enhance the personal and economic independence of people who are blind, primarily through creating, sustaining, and improving employment.

NIB works with more than 100 associated nonprofit agencies in more than 250 locations across the United States, offering a wide range of career opportunities for people who are blind, from cutting-edge manufacturing to knowledge-based professional services. NIB was established in 1938 and has called Alexandria home for more than 20 years. In November 2018, NIB moved into its new headquarters building in Potomac Yard.
