EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
I am going to give the NY Marathon another try this year, and am running for Wheeling Forward. This is a wonderful organization that helps people with disabilities experience life to the fullest and enables them to see possibility where others see insurmountable obstacles!
One of Wheeling Forward's major accomplishments has been creating The Axis Project in Manhattan. It is a first-of-its-kind health and wellness center that motivates people with physical disabilities to pursue a healthy, active lifestyle. The center is open 6 days a week and is designed specifically for people with physical disabilities with adaptive programming and all accessible equipment. I've visited this facility and was so amazed by what I saw!
See the videos on the left for inspiring information on the Axis Project, adaptable water skiing, and a conversation with the founders, Alex and Yannick. These two young men met while they were going through physical rehab for spinal chord injuries resulting from unrelated car accidents. However, instead of letting their circumstances slow them down, they are "Wheeling Forward!"
Please help me with this cause by making a donation of whatever you can. 100% of public donations directly fund Wheeling Forward programs and are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
