Alex Cohen, Co-Captain of team Blind Melon would love your support on a project he is working on which will help raise funds for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Alex invites you to participate in a brief research study he is conducting. After completing the survey your repsonse will count for a $5.00 donation to FFB. Alex Cohen, a blind Ph. D. student is researching the accessibility of sports teams' websites and how the blind and vision impaired use those sites. Before starting the survey, Alex asks that you visit the official website of your favorite sports team and spend a few minutes navigating their website. After clicking on the link below to begin the survey you will be asked about your experience on that website and what makes you a sports fan. Please do not hesitate to contact Alex at email@example.com if you have any questions or difficulties with the survey. Remember, for every person that completes this survey $5.00 will be donated to the Foundation Fighting Blindness! Click here to begin the survey
