After last year breaking my collarbone I decided this year to just help out. It was a privilege to be able to assist these men an women. This year there were 50 volunteers, approximately the same amount of people they had at the first tower climb! Over 500 people climbed the tower this year and over $315,000 raised, with one individual raising over $15,000 by himself (unassisted by the station)!! Outsanding efforts, makes me feel slightly insignificant by compairison.
Unfortuneately due to funding issues I was unable to attend this event.
Earlier today I had the pleasure of addressing the group at the Challenge Camp in Eastern Beach.
My presentation was on overcoming obsticles and was received by 32 participants of the camp and a number of other Rotary poeple.
Thank to Andrea, John, Dave and Hillary for making me feel welcomed and my time at the camp memorable.
To present to the new cabin crew a new perspective of dealing with specific needs individuals. We giving them an overview of some of the more common disabilities and indentify the similarities of able-bodied passengers and that of special needs passengers, in a manageable learning environment. This group of 12 new staff took the presentation very well and the trainers, as always, welcomed our visit.
