Description


It’s time for us to ROAR!


For 25 years, we have been quietly giving a person with a spinal cord injury the chance to swoosh down a mountainside in an adaptive sit ski; making it possible for a child with spina bifida to ride a bike; or giving an injured veteran with one leg the opportunity to waterski.

Through our adaptive sports, wellness, and outdoor recreation programs, thousands of adults, children, and veterans with disabilities experience Boundless Courage, Independence and Hope.

Join us for an adventure-filled evening sure to inspire the Boundless Courage within all of us.

Jeff Hogan, anchor for 10TV News, will be the emcee for this event.




ROAR Speakers:

Our featured speaker is Kirk Bauer, a disabled Vietnam veteran and Executive Director of Disabled Sports USA.

Kirk has been awarded the Gene Autry Courage Award and selected as the 1986 “Healthy American Fitness Leader,” an honor presented yearly by the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition (PCFSN). In 2008, he was awarded the “George M. Steinbrenner III Sports Leadership Award” by the United States Olympic Endowment in recognition of his outstanding contribution to sports. In 2013, Kirk was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the PCFSN.

Other speakers include Steve Ricker, TAASC founder and ski instructor; Maddie Mattey, TAASC Director of Sports and Volunteers; Amanda Young, former Miss Wheelchair Ohio; and Greer Rouda, TAASC board member, a business and community leader, and an incomplete quadriplegic due to a snowmobiling accident.
