Special Olympics and other Events – “My son has a disability that puts him in a wheelchair at all times. I wanted to find something to still keep him active, so I did some research on wheelchair sports and came across this helpful page:
It talks about the special olympics, similar opportunities for children with disabilities, wheelchair sports and wheelchair safety. It taught me a lot and when I shared the info with my son he got a huge smile on his face. Thanks. Susan”.
