Do you like competing in sports and races, and have a disability? You should sign up for the Victory Challenge -- Nassau County Empire State Games for the Physically Challenged.
Every year, Nassau County schools get a chance to compete against other schools to win medals and ribbons in many events, including relay racing, precision throw and kick, basketball, high and long jump, swimming and discus. There are events for those who can walk and for those who use a wheelchair.
Abibi Ocampo, says, "I like the power wheelchair races. We always have fun at the games!"
Ashley Brun-Johnson, added, "We have lots of fun. . . . I enjoy the racetrack." Don't take our word; come join us, our families, teachers and coaches each spring at Mitchel Field in Uniondale to take part in or watch the games.
