Paddlers Blog-Published story, so flattered

Hello Team, I have outstanding news to share. My Veterans story and my overcoming adversity journey have been published into a book. Entitled, “Promoting Successful Integration”, a book for Military Veterans to learn how to re-enter society or answer questions about re-entry. Some blessings are immediate and some take time. 3 years ago, PossAbilities had me speak at the 3rd annual, “Power of Inclusion” conference, where I shared my story and then had a few people ask me to submit it with other Veterans that [...]

2018 Paracycling National Championships–Awesome adventures in Augusta Georgia and reaching a new level of success!! By Jenna Rollman

The most important event at the 2018 Paracycling National Championships was the Time Trial.

On the morning of the time trial my stomach was filled with butterflies and my mind blankly unfocused as I got ready to warm [...]

Paratriathlon Worlds Finals, Rotterdam – Netherlands September 15th, 2017

Aloha fellow Team PossAbilities supporters and enthusiasts! Today we’re here to report about the Finals in Rotterdam. Everything about that race was tough: the weather, the course, the competitors. It was the same usual suspects, with varying degrees of disability (and unfairness in some cases as we know). After a smooth 10 hour flight from LAX to Amsterdam, I met with Team Brazil in the airport and we drove to Rotterdam. Beautiful 2 hour drive through green fields, a lot of [...]

Disabled athletes should inspire us

Carrie Finale of Pacifica, a member of Team PossAbilities and a competitor in the handcycling competition at this weekend’s Redlands Bicycle Classic. REDLANDS — To those of us with four healthy, functioning limbs, these cycles might look funny or weird at first glance. They’re long, low to the ground, meant for the rider to recline and not sit upright, and can be propelled by the hands just as well as by the feet. Maybe we’re the ones who should take a [...]

Handcycling becoming a welcome staple of the Classic

Matt McLeod, Redlands Daily Facts Redlands Daily Facts Posted: REDLANDS — It took months for Delmon Dunston to feel human again. The 33-year-old Riverside native will never forget the moment that first changed his life. The date was July 14, 2000, and Dunston was wrestling at a local gym when he shattered his C6 vertebra.
