BlazeSports and ABLE Network on Disability visit Delta

2012 Disability Fair

On Wednesday October 10th the ABLE Network on Disability hosted their annual Disability Fair.  The event was held in the historic hangar 13 at Delta headquarters, a unique venue which houses the ‘Spirit of Delta’, a giant Boeing 767 on permanent display as part of the Delta Heritage Museum. The Disability Fair is an annual event organized to give Delta employees a wide range of experiential and educational experiences related to working with people with disabilities. 

BlazeSports had a booth on site displaying information about programs and services, and challenged attendees to try out a wheelchair basketball.   Other organizations represented included The Shepherd Center, Georgia School for the Deaf and Center for the Visually impaired.

Keynote speaker, Aimee Copeland, spoke about her plans for the future and dream of setting up a Wilderness Therapy Centre for people with physical disabilities to experience the outdoors.
