First time, best time!

"There are other people out there who are just like me!"

Have you ever felt like an outsider looking in? Like there's nowhere you can go where you feel like you belong?

Heather felt that way before she signed up for her first Wheelchair Sports Festival last year. In fact, it was the first community event, besides support groups, that she had ever attended. Little did she know the kind of inclusive and supportive atmosphere she would soon encounter.

Watch Heather's story below.

What Heather discovered blew her expectations away! Surrounded by others in wheelchairs who were simply playing and laughing with friends and family, Heather felt an instant connection and warmth that she had never experienced before.

Triumph's volunteers wasted no time in embracing Heather, introducing themselves, showing her around, and ensuring she had all the equipment she needed to participate fully. It was a day filled with camaraderie, support, and new-found friends—a day she will cherish forever.

Heather's experience serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of community and peer-to-peer support. It's proof that no matter our circumstances, there's a place where we can find acceptance, encouragement, and belonging.

We encourage you to follow Heather's lead and join us for the upcoming Wheelchair Sports Festival. It's a chance to connect, have fun, and be part of a vibrant and inclusive community... did I mention it's FREE!
