John Robinson, Author of "Get OFF Your Knees"
 Congenital quad amputee John Robinson and  quadriplegic Doug Hamlin will lead the way as  Our Ability  undertakes the largest event ever for People with Disabilities in New York State- beginning June 23, a 17 day, 350 mile bike ride beginning in Buffalo and ending in Albany.
 The purpose of the trip is to raise awareness of the ability inside all People with Disabilities and raise funds for adaptive Sports, Accessibility, Education and Employment for New Yorkers with Disabilities for their assistance.

John is author of an autobiography titled Get OFF Your Knees. Married for over 19 years, and the father of 3 children, John carried the Olympic torch through Albany on its way to the Salt Lake City 2002 games.
On Friday, June 28, John and Our Ability will ride from Palmyra to Abbey Park in Lyons- yes the NEW TRAIL- --- tentative arrival time is noon.

On June 29, Saturday morning at 9:00AM, John and the Our Ability entourage will tour the Trail of Hope. At 11:00 AM they will launch from Abbey Park in Outrigger Canoes and then paddle to Lauraville Landing in Clyde.  
Outrigger canoes will be provided by Cape Ability Outrigger Ohana, Inc. This organization is a Rochester Chapter of Disabled Sports, USA. They especially honor and include Wounded Warriors in their programs.

WELCOME these inspiring individuals ON FRIDAY AND THEN SEND THEM ON A SAFE JOURNEY ON SATURDAY MORNING!!!! Better yet, show your support by kayaking or canoeing with them from Abbey Park to Lauraville Landing in Clyde.
