JULY 26, 2015 WAS THE 25 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE SIGNING OF THE ADA INTO LAW & WE WERE BLESSED TO CELEBRATE IT WITH OUR FRIENDS & FAMILY WHILE ENJOYING THE GREAT OUTDOORS BEING ACTIVE DOING SOMETHING WE ALL LOVE.
"It's not in everyone's blood to ride down a 10 ft. ramp or drop into a half
pipe on a wheelchair as it is for my son, but it is within us to be with people
we can relate to; to know you are not alone and to learn from each other. Camping, fishing, kayaking, basketball, waterskiing: the opportunities are endless. Doing sports & activities with other wheelers has boosted my
son's self esteem and shown him that there is nothing in this world that
he can't conquer."
~Amber Tinsley speaking of her son, Connor who happens to have spina bifida.
