Accessible Racing

In June of 2008, I was chosen to be one of eight "celebrity drivers" for the Accessible Racing program. We all got together in Andover, Massachusetts for our "Skid School" training on the first day. We were instructed in Emergency Braking, Slalom, and Navigating an Auto-Cross Course. Then the crew all headed on to Woodstock, New Hampshire for a day on the track at the White Mountain Racetrack.

Adapted Rock Climbing at GVSU

In February of 2006, I took part in the Adaptive Rock Climbing Clinic at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. The event is put on in part by Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital (where I did my rehab. after my accident), Kentwood Parks and Rec. and Grand Rapids Wheelchair Sports Association. We had a great turnout for the day. A lot of climbers got to show their stuff. I actually made it all the way to the top and got to ring the bell twice that day.
