We all had a blast (pun intended!) at the 4th of July Parade in Fort Collins today.
Awesome in Action revealed itself as an official 501(c) 3 organization today with our brand new t-shirts sporting the nonprofit Awesome in Action logo.
We even had an official mascot this year! Thank you, Jarvis, the amazing 3 legged dog, for displaying what being Awesome in Action is all about!
Thank you also to special friends, Liz and Leonard Urban for joining us this year!
On a whim, Martin joined us to add to his Marathon training workout (He’d already done the Firecracker 5K twice!)
Of course, no party is complete without this joker and her crew! We had so much fun with Kelleen, Charlie, and their kids Riley, Kira, and Aidan.
And, as always, we loved to have our dear friend, Tammy Castell, joining us to march this year!
The old crew, Alex, Thalia, and Olivia joined the parade, and they were a great help getting ready!
and they were even nice to each other (mostly!)
Nothing says the 4th of July like a duel with cardboard tubes!
Here’s a few shots of us marching from behind! Susan took the wheel to drive the Silver Bullet down the parade route!
Vanessa is a hot kid after the long parade! Even so, she chose to share her Popsicle with Jarvis. Guess her mom, Amy, is teaching this (almost) youngest AiA team member some great values!
Thank you, Roussos Family, for coming to support us during the parade!
From our family to yours, Awesome in Action wishes you a happy and safe Independence Day!
Back in June, Nick and the AiA team were fortunate enough to be welcomed as an
exhibitor at the National ADA Symposium, held at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Denver. How lucky that it was held in Denver this year! Next year, Chicago will host the Symposium.
We saw advanced technologies, feats of engineering, and met educators, business people, designers, counselors, government folks, and most of them had some disability. Yet here they were, changing their own situations and the lives of others.
It took Nick a minute to realize this was not a real dog!
Nick discovered one very cool Water Wheels
“beach wheelchair.” He is fairly sure it will come in handy during triathlons and other water fun!
Connecting with new friends and reconnecting with old, we had a most amazing conference!!
