Visually Impaired Children, Gender Bias in Athletics, Business in Art, and More, May 2014

On this episode we have several stories of people making an impact on others just by doing what they love. See a touching story of EMS workers honored by the very patients they helped. You don’t want to miss this emotional reunion. We introduce you to a group of lawyers and accountants volunteering their time to help artists understand the business side of their creative work. St. Louis is lucky to have a group that is improving the lives of those who live life in darkness ranging from 3 months old to adulthood. You’ll also meet a young woman who would not take no for an answer. See how she broke down barriers in a sport reserved mainly for boys and is now being talked about as an Olympic hopeful.

Impact is living up to its name by highlighting people, companies, and organizations making the commitment to find innovative ways to improve the quality of life for others. These are the good news stories from our own community that will focus on those making a difference in someone's life, whether that's in their neighborhood, community or around the world. Tune in, it could have an impact on you!
