The CNIB EmpowerPlay Podcast captures stories from a myriad of persons affected by sight loss, on how being physically active, participating in sport, taking on a new challenge, learning a new skill, and generally just stepping outside your comfort zone, can lead to amazing self discovery.
Through the act of "play", in its variety of forms, we showcase how people become empowered to take on the world and live the lives of our dreams.
S.M.A.R.T. Goals & Virtual 5k

Powered By Human Potential
In this episode, we discuss the concept of providing programs that are powered by human potential. We also discuss the idea that everyone has nearly limitless potential in that one should never shrink the options available to them selves when it comes to setting goals and living their dreams.
Living life outside of your comfort zone can yield amazing rewards!
That's Easy For You To Say!
The main goal of the EmpowerPlay podcast is to help persons with low vision know that those dreams that seem out of reach, really don't have to be.
"That's easy for you to say" is a catalyst for Ryan Van Praet to share his story. That phrase which is often said to him, suggests that luck and good fortune are the keys to accomplishing your dreams.
Ryan shares how he very much disagrees with that statement and fills you in on his journey. The take home is that being passionate, being consistent, learning from a failure and just sticking with it, can go a long way to accomplishing your best life.
