Roughly 150 amputees and wheelchair-bound skaters suited up at Lively Pointe Skate Park where Irving-based RISE Adaptive Sports teamed up with Life Rolls On to host the 2nd annual They Will Skate Again in Irving on April 25. A combination of recreational and competitive skating, They Will Skate Again helps disabled athletes hone their skills as peers and professional skaters challenge them to be better athletes and more active members of their community.
“It’s a challenge. People face their fears; people overcome their fears. If they can do that here, they can relay that into others things in their life out in the community,” said Chris Goad, RISE Adaptive Sports’ Executive Director.
