Meet Hannah, a 17-year-old wheelchair basketball athlete from Henrico, Virginia who aspires to become a Special Education teacher. She is the recipient of the Fall 2020 Adaptive Sports Scholarship award from ABCmedical.
“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!
In February 1990, I was injured with a C5/6 spinal cord injury. I felt I needed to find a way to stand up, even with the disapproval of my rehab doctor. who did not believe there to be any benefit from standing.
I fired him.
In 1993 I met the owner of The Standing Wheelchair Company and purchased my first Superstand standing wheelchair.
We have been friends ever since.
