I'm excited to help bring a major international event to my backyard! Next summer, Winter Park, Colorado we will be the setting for the fifth No Barriers Summit. Scheduled from June 30th to July 3rd, 2011, this is the world's top gathering of scientists, innovators, and disabled outdoor athletes. The No Barriers Summit is a unique opportunity for people to check out the latest assistive technologies, meet some amazing people who have turned adversity to their advantage, and participate in a wide range of clinics and sympossiums.
The No Barriers Summits have been held in Italy and the US (Tahoe and Miami), where they have been a tremendous success. The next Summit will be hosted by the National Sports Center for the Disabled, which is one of the largest outdoor therapeutic recreation agencies in the world. This promises to be the biggest and best event yet!
Here's a preview video to give you an idea of what the Summit is about:
