On Sunday, June 22nd Shannon Minnick, Ms. Wheelchair Maryland 2010 organized and hosted the 5th Annual Disabilities Awareness Experience in Downtown Silver Springs, Maryland. I enjoyed meeting the attendees and sharing my wheelchair journey. Butterfly Zumba gave me a workout that I won’t forget. The Band played hits from the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s. It was a fantastic day people without disabilities had an opportunity to interact with people with disabilities which helps break barriers and stereotypes.
