I received a request from a physiotherapist from an outpatient children’s treatment centre that is dedication to working with kids of all ages with special needs that need intense therapy before going to school.
Quotes from the request;
"I want to show these kids that being active is rewarding, and that sport is whatever you make it, as long as it gets your heart pumping and your face smiling."
"I know that you do some wheelchair golf skills, and I’m wondering if you would be willing to come visit us at the centre sometime to show the kids how golf can be played from any position, with any skill."
"Please consider, I’m sure you’re getting into the busiest part of your year, but from your website it seems like you are driven to inspire, and that’s what I’m hoping to do here for the next generation of golfers!!"
What she failed to mention was that at the end of the day the roles were going to be changed, as I became the student and these amazing individuals were the teachers.
The most potent experiences in life are those that inspire us. In both simple actions and grand gestures, we can find the inspiration that keeps our eyes open to radical new possibilities. These amazing kids used their bodies to achieve feats of physicality that are only surpassed by personal satisfaction and confidence.
