Handicap This!

98.3fm shotHi, everyone! Today I’ll share with you a website that gave me the push I needed to go ahead and pursue my dreams.  Handicap This! Handicap This consists of a team of people that work together to write skits talk to people about inclusion and tolerance.    Therefore, raising awareness for disabilities. They go around the country sharing stories and comical skits to educate and entertain.

Handicap This was founded by Mike Berkson and Tim Wambach.  Mike is a twenty-seven year old with Cerebral Palsy, and Tim has been his one-on-one aid since he was twelve years old. After, a few years they  both set out to bridge the gap between the two worlds of mobility and accessibility and dependence and special needs.  They wanted to raise awareness so Tim ran cross-country, and the response was amazing.  Following, that big event Mike and Tim started The Keep On Keeping On Foundation.  They help families purchase wheelchairs, home modifications, equipment, and therapy.

With all the success from that speaking engagements soon followed, and that’s what started Handicap This.

I got the chance to interview these great guys last year, and they truly motivated me to keep pushing towards my goals.  To see my interview with Handicap This click here.
