Motivational Speaker | Blind Ultra-Athlete | Humanitarian
"As the first blind person to run from California to New York, Jason has quite the story to tell, and he does so eloquently and passionately....I am inspired by Jason's strength as a competitor, but his ability to connect with individuals facing barriers or teams facing challenges, puts him in a caliber of his own. I highly recommend inviting Jason Romero to speak to any organization to inspire and motivate your teams."
