The second annual “Our Ability Journey Along the Erie Canal,” rode through Montezuma today on their trip cycling from Tonawanda to Albany, June 30 to July 11. Their “journey” is meant to raise awareness and help individuals with disabilities achieve their highest and best aspirations for education and employment. The 350 mile journey will raise funds for Adaptive Sports, Education and Employment support of people with disabilities programs here in New York State.
Successful businessmen John Robinson, a congenital amputee, and Doug Hamlin, a quadriplegic, are being accompanied by their families and many others as they cross the state on the Erie Canalway Trail. John was inspired to undertake the journey last year after receiving the donation of a three-wheeled hand-operated bicycle.
Our Ability, Inc. was formed as a role model to provide leadership to share stories with people facing similar challenges inside businesses.
