For this weeks blog post I wanted to share a news article that one of my coworkers sent to me. It features a local foundation called Fish-Abled. It is a not-for-profit organization in Rockford that helps individuals with disabilities participate and attend social activities such as baseball games, fishing outings, concerts, bowling outings, etc … free of charge.
After reading this article I was encouraged by what I read, because I felt that there are a lot of people not only the U.S. that want to make a difference, but locally that want to help. Having a disability shouldn’t cause a person to stop living and having fun, but for some individuals it can complete matters or limit their activity. To have an organization or group of people willing to ensure that individuals with disabilities can still interact socially and participate is really important.
