The 12th annual Northeastern U.S. Conference on disABILITY conference, being held Oct. 2, will close with a 4:30 p.m. presentation of “Handicap This! Stage Show.”
The stage show, to be held in the McIlhenny Ballroom of the DeNaples Center, is open to the public free of charge. HandicapThis! provides an entertaining and inspirational presentation that seeks to dispel misunderstandings about cerebral palsy and other disabilities and underscores the possibilities people possesses to overcome obstacles.
The performance features Mike Berkson, founding member of Handicap This!, inspirational leader of the Keep On Keeping On Foundation, and aspiring film-maker and novelist, who was born with cerebral palsy. Also featured in “Handicap This! Stage Show” is Tim Wambach, founding member and production manager of Handicap This! and president of the Keep On Keeping On Foundation. He is the author of “How We Roll,” a book describing his relationship with Berkson. In August of 2005, Wambach ran 717 miles between Orlando, Fla., and Chicago, Ill., to raise awareness for cerebral palsy.
