Who Inspires Us

The goal of the Living Well With A Disability program is to open up opportunities; educate individuals of possibilities; and encourage both the youth and the mature, to know they too can rock climb, write a book, or do anything they put their mind to. We would like to share with you some of the stories that we’ve come across; the people that have made a difference in our lives, and continue to uplift others.
