Fort Collins Comic Con 2019

North Atzlan Center

Nick met his twin at Comic Con!

On August 17th and 18th Nick and the Awesome in Action team participated in Fort Collins Comic Con for the 3rd year.

This awesome event brings creative people from the community together to share ideas and creations with participants.

Nick and Nick! Nick Armstrong heads Fort Collins Comic Con every year!

Nick’s booth was used to show that anyone can be a hero. Nick helped kids make awesome superhero masks and posed for pictures. Nick made sure to help everyone who visited his booth understand that they have superpowers that make them special.

Nick and Oakland are superheroes together!

Nick really enjoyed seeing all the creative and fun costumes and getting to dress up himself! Some of the costumes were scary, but Nick showed his superpowers by keeping calm, cool, and collected when something scary walked by his booth!

Nick’s booth was really fun and interactive!

Nick presented a panel on Saturday, where he gave his Anyone Can Be a Hero speech. He talked about his struggles and challenges as a person living with Cerebral Palsy, and how he overcomes his challenges and finds his inner superhero.

Nick’s panel offered a new view on being a superhero.

The organizers of Comic Con have always been kind and welcoming to Nick and his team, and helped make the Con as successful as possible for Nick. Nick had so much help and support to make this event a success and he wants to send a special thank you to his team, the Comic Con team and Nick Armstrong, and Annie Schubert who helped Nick with his panel.

Nick and Annie are pretty super!

The impact Nick made on those who stopped by his booth was pretty clear, and Nick was happy to make some really great connections with others in his community who want to help spread his message.

Rocio, Nick, and Liz look pretty cool together!

Comic Con was a success again this year, and Nick is excited and ready to start presenting in classrooms for the school year.

Nick made some new friends and saw some old ones too! Nick and Batman go way back.

If you or someone you know is interested in having Nick come to your classroom or event to offer one of his many presentations, please contact him via email at nick@awesomeinaction.org.

Nick’s presentations can be adapted to any situation and age group, and his message of inclusion and diversity is appropriate for all ages.

THANK YOU!

Kid Days at the Promenade Shops

Nick and Audrey are pretty proud of themselves!

August 6, 2019 – Kid Days

On August 6th at the Promenade Shops at Centerra in Loveland, CO, Nick participated in Kid Days! This event offered hands-on learning experiences for kids of all ages.

Nick offered his booth of disability simulations including a wheelchair obstacle course, vision impairment simulations, and simulations of different physical limitations.

Nick set up his table to be as accessible as possible

Nick’s booth offered a unique opportunity during the event for families to teach their children what it means to move or think differently.

Toren did a great job navigating the course while experiencing different depth perception!

Nick enjoyed checking out the other booths and seeing how other vendors engaged kids in their activities. Nick definitely made some friends, not all of them human!

Nick thinks the tortoise is very interesting! Or maybe it’s the snake!

The event was a success and gave Nick the opportunity to continue to perfect his interactive booth to give the most engaging experience possible! Nick makes connections everywhere he goes, and loves getting to meet so many new people and find those who are interested in helping spread his message of inclusivity and diversity.

Nick wants to say THANK YOU to all the attendees of Kid Days!
