Guiding Eyes is excited to share that RealSports with Bryant Gumbel will air a special edition, featuring three stories highlighting how man’s best friend has impacted the world of sports.

One very special episode features the Guiding Eyes Running Guides Program, represented by Thomas Panek, President and CEO, and Running Guide Specialist, Payden Hubbert. Host David Scott meets with Thomas and Payden in New York City’s Central Park, to learn how this unique program offers freedom and a healthy lifestyle to visually-impaired athletes. It’s an exciting opportunity these running enthusiasts never thought possible, and it’s changing the future for the blind.

Season 29 – Episode 8 airs Tuesday, August 22nd (11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO and will be available to stream on Max.
