Calendar Highlights the Power of Sport and Focuses on Redefining DisabilityROCKVILLE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, January 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Over 70 different adaptive sports are offered across the country, including alpine skiing, snowboarding, sled hockey, wheelchair tennis, cycling, wheelchair football, swimming, scuba, track & field, kayaking, climbing, wheelchair racing, hiking, and more. To highlight the various adaptive sports available, Move United has produced the 2022 Adaptive Sports Calendar, which features various athletes and adaptive sports, a listing of Move United members across the country, and other resources and information.
Move United solicited images through a nationwide photo contest. After receiving nearly 100 submissions, 13 entries were selected for this year’s calendar. Photographers include John Thompson, Andy Templeton, Wheelchair Sports Federation, Keith Arimura, Kayla Lee, Fidel Lopez, Katie Joly, Chandler Burgess, Jeff Hackett, Tim Brown, and Reed Hoffmann. Featured athletes include Paralympians Declan Farmer and Hannah Dederick, youth athletes, wounded warfighters and other adults with physical disabilities. This is the fourth consecutive year the award-winning calendar has been produced.
"We know the way people view disability is far from reality," said Move United Communications Manager Shuan Butcher. "This calendar was developed to help shift the narrative and redefine what disability looks like."
