As the plane slowly descended through the clouds towards LAX, I closed my eyes to think of the successful athletes this city has bred for decades. A film strip of many names and faces popped up in my head: Jackie Joyner-Kersee, a UCLA track and basketball star and a 4-time Olympian, she was ranked among the all-time greatest athletes in the heptathlonas as well as long jump, a big role model to young women athletes;"Magic" Johnson, picked in the 1979 draft, he spent all 13 years of his NBA career in Los Angeles leading the Lakers to 5 national titles; Elgin Baylor, an 11-time All-Star and Hall of Famer ranks among the top 25 in points and rebounds in NBA history; Candace Cable, a 9-time Paralympian and the first woman athlete to compete both in winter and summer Paralympic games; and Dave Kiley, a 6-time Paralympian, legendary wheelchair basketball player who has won 13 Paralympic medals, 11 of them gold in 3 different sports, head coach of the 2012 London U.S. Women's Paralympic Wheelchair Basketball team. This dreamy film strip was interrupted when our plane touched the ground. I was brought to reality. I was in Los Angeles and was looking forward to finding out what it had to offer!

Why Does a DME Supplier Strive to Be the Number 1 Supporter of Adaptive Sports?

ABC Medical, a national provider of medical supplies, redefined their mission and purpose since CEO Keith Jones and a group of seasoned healthcare professionals acquired the company in 2012. “Companies like us typically focus on volume and margins as well as manage through the difficult world of reimbursement. While all of those things are critical for a successful business, to us, it is quite frankly boring, uninspiring, and certainly not a mission to be proud of. After attending a few adaptive sports events with my son, and meeting some of our customers fiercely competing on the basketball court, our mission became obvious – To Do Well by Doing Good“ says ABC Medical’s Keith Jones.

Congratulations to Lindsey McGlinch, who won the   Spinergy Wheels prize in the Build Your Dream Raffle! We met up with Lindsey to learn more about her and her dreams. Check out her story below:   
 
Lindsey McGlinch is from Greenville, OH. She was injured in a car accident 20 years ago.  She is currently working as a school nurse at a public high school. 

Just like most PER4MAXers out there, she's an adaptive sports enthusiast and has tried many different sports, but found her passion in wheelchair basketball. She got involved six years ago, when she saw her current team Miami Valley Raptors doing an exhibition game at an expo. "

As soon as their game was over, I went up to them and asked what I had to do to try out for the team.

Why I Play Wheelchair Bowling and Why Everyone Should Give It a Try too

Jan 20, 2017 9:22:42 AM / by Işıl Tanyeri posted in wheelchair bowling, american wheelchair bowling association, adaptive sports, inclusion

I began wheelchair bowling in 2004 as a recreational activity. Little did I know how this sport would help build health/wellness and most importantly community within my life. I joined the American Wheelchair Bowling Association (AWBA) after being a spectator at the 2005 Las Vegas Invitational and became a lifetime member in 2012. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed bowling in as many tournaments as possible across the country. While serving on the Board of Directors with the AWBA, I have developed a strong appreciation for the sport of bowling, as well as the competition, relationships, and opportunities the AWBA provides.
