It is our mission to make these chairs readily available and affordable to people with disabilities or limitations. This chair not only removes the feeling of being a burden, but allows for active inclusion in all activities.
As I sat in front of this historic wall, I visualized my own dream. The ability to participate in our past usual activities, beach/sand, snow/skiing, hiking, playing with the kids in the yard.
I’m a paraplegic of 28 years. I have only dreamed about this type of freedom. I was a three sport athlete with a football scholarship. I am a 1992 Paralympic Gold and Bronze medalist and World Record holder. I started Fairfax County Virginia’s Wheelchair Sports Program with five teen and pre-teen kids. Since then, they have grown substantially, adopted the name Fairfax Falcons and are a nationally recognized and ranked Sports program. My dream now is to help others with disabilities and limitations, experience this type of freedom.
