Nick didn’t want to look at the camera, there was too much going on!

Nick once again got the chance to participate in the annual City of Fort Collins 4th of July parade!

Nick loved having his friends and family participate in the parade with him, and Nick got a lot of attention. The Awesome in Action crew loved the chance to show people there are different ways to move.

We can show the world there are different ways to move, together!

27 Years of the Americans With Disabilities Act

Department of Justice seal On July 26, 2017, the Department of Justice published “27 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act,” and Nick was so busy hanging out at the Ability Fest in Fort Collins, that he forgot to remind all of the Nicksters and you, his followers!
So, in a time of political uncertainty and tension, we here at AiA would like you to know that because of this piece of legislation 27 years ago, Nick is able to enjoy a quality of life from simple breathing, nourishment, outdoor water sports, to community speaking events like his 2015 TEDxFrontRange speech, or taking an evening  “roll” through the neighborhood as the sun sets.
Thank you ADA, former President George HW Bush, and all your proponents in Congress.  You and the folks who adhered to the law made an incredibly positive change in our world and are what being awesome is all about!  Awesome in Action
