Our programs are designed to help individuals with disabilities gain their independence
and engage with their communities.
One of the first ramps I built for this program was for a gentleman named Earl, and just as I was finishing up, he came rolling down the ramp with a smile on his face and a tear in the corner of his eyes. He looked at me, shook my hand and said, “Thank you, friend. This is the first time in four years I have been able to get out of my house by myself.

Besides having the goal of building an inclusive team, what I hope to leave behind during my time with the Toledo Crash is to change the societal perspective of what it means to be a disabled athlete.

It’s difficult to explain exactly all the ways my first service dog Cody impacted myself and my family’s lives. Cody and I become partners in the spring class in 2007 and he was with me through both difficult and amazing times. With him, I became much more independent at home and in public. My stress and anxiety greatly decreased and I became more social.
