Visually impaired runners have finished marathons using human guides before, but this was the first case where a blind man relied solely on guide dogs to cross over the finish line.

Panek’s reason for using a guide dog is more than understandable; while human volunteers are helpful and supportive, he missed the feeling of independence. By completing the race, Panek showed just how independent a blind person can be with the help of a furry companion.
