WE’RE ON A MISSION TO EMPOWER COMMUNITIES!
“DON’T LET YOUR STRUGGLE BE YOUR IDENTITY.”
It’s been a while since we last sent an update, but we have good reasons! Disabled But Not Really has been busy collaborating on exciting new initiatives that draw upon the power of our community.
First, DBNR is bringing #HelpMeFit Mobile to you! This creative take on our #HelpMeFit Challenge will improve access to adaptive gym equipment and trainers for the broader KC community.
Second, founder of DBNR, Wesley Hamilton, has been touring KC parks in the weekly episodes of Wellness with Wesley. He’s promoting outdoor fitness and advocating for park accessibility. Wes is also part of a special project to make the city’s first inclusive and educational park. More info can be found on the KC Parks and Rec Facebook page.
Third, Wes is engaging local youth in adaptive strength training, and he’s coaching wheelchair basketball.
All of these pursuits are fulfilling DBNR’s mission to empower individuals with disabilities to have limitless mindsets, while focusing on communities of color that do not have access to resources that encourage healthy physical and mental lifestyles.
And remember—individually we are strong, but together we are stronger.
PROGRAMS WITH A PURPOSE
Our core beliefs are in promoting fitness, nutrition and lifestyle events that empower those we serve. Providing the opportunity to become productive and self-serving while gaining the knowledge necessary for living a healthy, independent lifestyle.
