AINC Audio Trekkers

For over 30 years, hundreds of AINC volunteers have read over 200 Colorado publications that are broadcasted and accessed through a PBS channel, telephone, website, and smart speakers.

Thanks to generous donors and grants, AINC provides services for FREE to thousands of print impaired Coloradoans. AINC’s mission is “Bringing Print to Life'' and what better way to support us than connecting our listeners to the great Colorado outdoors.

Last year, the AINC Audio Trekkers Team consisted of nearly 80 hikers! Hikers who are blind/visually impaired hiked with their sighted guides. Let's make it happen again this year!

Reflections from the 2021 Audio Trekkers:

scott smiling“I lost my job last year during Covid. I wanted to work again, but kept getting nowhere. Standing on the summit motivated me not to give up and two weeks afterwards I received a job offer.”

“I am a Colorado native and have never hiked before. The hike inspired me to embrace a healthier lifestyle so that next year I will make it to the summit!”

“I am a stroke survivor and have felt completely alone for a long time. I used to be active, but the stroke took so much from me. The hike changed me and how I look at what I still can do. I am now a volunteer at my stroke rehabilitation center supporting new stroke survivors on their way back.”
