Here at Outdoor Ability Foundation, a 501 (c) 3) nonprofit, we are dedicated to providing grants to purchase adaptive equipment for the disabled outdoorsman focusing on young adults and children so that they can enjoy the great outdoors.
Grayson was born with Spina Bifida in 1999. As you can see from the pictures, he has not allowed it to slow him down very much. He's been on many adventures that include hunting, fishing, water and snow skiing, ice hockey, hiking/camping with his Boy Scout Troop, and wheelchair basketball (the team he plays with won the National Championship for their division in 2013).
He absolutely loves the outdoors more than anything. That comes with a few challenges when you have a disability. Grayson and I have enjoyed many outdoor experiences together and want to help other families do the same.
Our challenge in the past has been having the adapted "tools" to get where we want, when we want it for the activity. We know that other families/individuals face the same challenges and have limited funds available to purchase adaptive equipment. That is why we created Outdoor Ability Foundation 501 (c) 3.
We provide grants to purchase adaptive equipment like crossbow cocking devices, portable hunting blinds, fishing equipment, skiing equipment, etc. for those families, individuals, and groups needing this equipment to provide outdoor experiences for the disabled.
Grayson and I have enjoyed outdoor adventures for years but are just beginning our journey as Outdoor Ability Foundation to help others. Help us spread the word by sharing us on Facebook.
We are proud to present Ronnie McNabb a chairlift for his power chair. Ronnie loves to hunt and fish and the lift will allow him to get to and from the field or pond a lot easier.
Ronnie, who has Cerebal Palsy, lost his mom in an auto accident when he was 4 years old. His grandparents have been lovingly caring for him for the past 14 years.
After hearing what they had to do in order to get him around, we moved forward to help. They would either have people lift the power chair in and out of the back of their truck or load his power chair in a trailer that cannot go all the places they needed to go.
Ronnie told us that he was ready to hit the woods and get a big deer this year. Good luck Ronnie! We look forward to seeing your picture on our brag board.Type your paragraph here.
