Peru Project Day 2

Although the turn-out was smaller than expected, participants played 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 basketball. Closing comments, a moving speech by one of the participants, T-shirt giveaway's, and final goodbye's and pictures finished off the day. We hope the donated wheelchairs will help advance the adaptive sports program in the Chiclayo area.

KTM camp Day 2

On the second day of the Camp, the participants did stretches, warm-ups and drills but as importantly had a chance to try the donated wheelchairs. We found the participants to be eager to get going, pleasant, willing to learn, cooperative, hard working, and fun-loving. Well over 60 people attended and all were a joy to work with.

In Vizag - Sunday, November 27 2011

Our 2nd Clinic was held in Southeast India, in the city of Vizag. A 1-day event organized by The Ability People, a non-profit with Dilip Patro as its President. All the responsibility of conducting the clinic fell on the shoulders of Pete & Michael Rosenkrantz who agreed to fly down and help Pete out. Since our decision to go to Vizag was made after airline tickets had already been bought, Greg and Shelley were not able to attend. The event got plenty of press coverage, & local dignitary's made an appearance. We donated 6 sport wheelchairs to The Ability People with the understanding that Dilip would establish an adaptive sport program to utilize the chairs on a regular basis. Based on what we saw, there is hope mixed with concern that such a program may be harder to put into effect than we were initially led to believe. Although successful in its own way, there are many aspects of the Vizag Project that we would have wanted done differently. Once again, much thanks to Michael Rosenkrantz of the for the pictures.

Aamir Khan and Kenny Natt & Many Wonderful Experiences at Amar Jyoti!

If it's true "a picture paints a thousand words" then there is a wonderful book written with these pictures. We have chosen to share with you ALL of the pictures available to us, taken at the the Amar Jyoti clinic. What an experience!! Everyone was lucky to have the famous actor Aamir Khan attend and actually participate by getting in a wheelchair to push and shoot. We also were fortunate to have Kenny Natt, the national coach of the Idian Men's Basketball team, attend and participate in the clinic. Once again, special thanks to Michael Rosenkrantz of the National Trust (in India) for making all of these pictures available to us.... they can all be found on his Facebook account as well https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2764181629640.223673.1410846536&type=1&l=689112fb2d
