Let’s be real—people are unfamiliar with people with disabilities. At Move United, we believe sports have the power to change the world, pushing people further and bringing people closer. Through adaptive sports, we show what people with disabilities are capable of. We fuel candid conversations and incite the action it takes to build a world where everyone’s included.
As a result, Move United has launched “Redefining Disability,” a new podcast that focuses on the power of sport. Redefining Disability will be a great resource for listeners interested and involved in the adaptive sports field. Move United is looking forward to sharing how sports have made it possible for our nation’s top adaptive athletes, training tips from the best coaches and program leaders, and news on latest technology, equipment, and trends in the industry through this platform.
The podcast is an extension of Move United magazine, the nation’s leading adaptive sports publication. The magazine is published three times a year and available in print by subscription as well as online. In episodes of Redefining Disability, you will delve into the lives of athletes with physical disabilities to hear how they have been able to adapt and achieve, get the 411 on how to begin in or excel at a particular adaptive sport, learn the best techniques in training from coaches and program experts, find out what’s on the cutting edge in terms of technology, equipment, or trends, or catch up on upcoming adaptive sports events and programs.
Sports make us more. They make us victorious and vulnerable and better than we were yesterday. And they turn strangers into teammates, putting us all on a level playing field.
Redefining Disability debuted in February 2021 and bring you interviews with Army Veteran Tony Drees, Team USA Para Fencers Byron Branch and Ellen Geddes, Nordic Skier Lera Doderlein, Paralympic Medalist and Swimmer Sophia Herzog, Wheelchair Rugby Players Chuck Melton and Joe Delagrave, Powerlifter Kelli Ann Stallkamp, and Navy Veteran and Para Climber Jared Lenahan- and that’s just the first few months!
