Aug 14, 2018 3:15:21 PM / by Ali Kaplan posted in adaptive sports, independence, LA 2028, wheelchair dance, Rollettes


“I want the world to be accepting of me, but not adapt for me. I want to be able to figure out ways to adapt and get around.  I want to believe that people are helpful and that I can trust them.” shared the Arizona State University student-athlete and a Rollettes Lil Sis Christina Chambers over a phone interview with us earlier this month. In a way she redefined what ‘ABC’ stands for: Adapt.Believe.Compete.  We were fortunate enough to be introduced to two amazing dancers, Christina Chambers and Maria Rabiano through our support of the Rollettes dance team and their Be Boundless Summit which, by the way is coming up this Saturday, on August 18th and we cannot wait for it!

Happily Ever After

Jul 18, 2018 11:19:08 AM / by Dave Kiley posted in adaptive sports, spina bifida, graduation, accident


A family holiday trip to Alabama for Santiago (Santi) Rueda over Memorial Day weekend, simple and sweet.

The vision does not include any negative thoughts, just anticipation of all the activity and food one can have on such a trip....which Santi’s family has done countless times before.

The weekend had begun and Santi and his Mom, Serena, mount an ATV to punch their fun meter together. Something about ATV’s, Jet Ski’s or even sit down mowers that we take for granted. Operation of an ATV seems to be an easy do, as we are unsuspecting participants that unintentionally underestimate the danger that lurks behind the above mentioned equipment.
