I had the great opportunity to attend the REACH/Rise picnic out at Grapevine Lake. It was my first time attending a RISE event. It was unbelievable to see all the talent out there. My co-worker and her grandchildren went tubing it was awesome to see the smiles on their faces and all the fun they were having. It opened my eyes about how truly unlimited someone is that has a disability. I wasn’t even aware that there was an organization out there that allowed people with disabilities to become active in water sports and other adaptable sports. I met a lot of great people and have become a volunteer for RISE. I would recommend becoming involved in RISE; it’s a great organization that has a great mission. I look forward to attending several more events with RISE and meeting more great people.
