A Guided Path

Alex France always knew that he wanted to attend Midland University in Fremont and run on their cross country running team. What he didn’t know is that by the time he would get to college, he would be legally blind due to a rare eye disease. Midland recruited France and, with the help of a guide runner, France has become a key member of the team. France and his guide runner, Tim Grundmayer, have developed an incredible bond and hope to compete at the Paralympics in France in 2024.
