Iseman, Cunningham, Riester & Hyde LLP (ICRH) recently supported John Robinson of Our Ability (http://www.ourability.com) with the organization’s recent 12-day bike journey across New York via the Erie Canal and Canal way Trail.
Robinson, born without full arms and legs, has overcome countless obstacles to become a successful businessman, family man and inspirational speaker. He founded Our Ability with his friend Doug Hamlin, a quadriplegic as a result of an accident, to inspire people with disabilities through positive video stories. Robinson mentors, connects and inspires people with disabilities toward education and employment.
In June, the duo boarded their adaptive bicycles along with family and friends for the ambitious 360-mile ride. This is the trek’s second year as a way of raising the public’s consciousness of the contributions and strides people with disabilities are making. The group rode 30 miles each day with daily celebration programs, coordinated through NYSARC chapters, held at stops along the route.
Our Ability partnered with the New York State Canal Corporation, the Disability Education Forum of New York, Inc., the Erie Canal way National Heritage Corridor, New York State Industries for the Disabled, Inc. (NYSID), and NYSARC, Inc. The journey concluded on the Capitol steps in Albany coinciding with NYSARC’s 65th anniversary celebration.
