Advanced Driving Systems Helps People With Disabilities Get Active

Share Article

ADS partners with the Florida Disabled Outdoors Association.

In an effort to help people with disabilities become more active and healthier, Advanced Driving Systems, Inc. (ADS) has partnered with the Florida Disabled Outdoors Association (FDOA). ADS’s support will ensure that the Miracle Sports and SportsAbility programs help people with disabilities concentrate on their abilities in recreation and active leisure. FDOA counts on community support to continue its wellness efforts.

“We are proud to support Florida Disabled Outdoors Association programs that give people with disabilities opportunities to become fit, well and active,” said Scott Poore, president of ADS. “We know that through recreation people learn important skills like transportation that lead to vocations and to people fully participating in their communities. Since both organizations have the same goals, it was a natural fit.”

Advanced Driving Systems is Tallahassee’s one-stop shop for independence mobility assistance from scooter repairs to full custom van conversions.

FDOA Executive Director Laurie LoRe-Gussak said, “It is really a wonderful partnership. ADS recognize the value of helping their clients and people of all abilities in the community become healthier and reduce the risks of secondary health conditions. Many of the athletes have been coming out for years and depend on these programs for wellness, socialization, networking and mentoring.”

The Miracle Sports baseball season is currently underway on Thursday nights at the Miracle Field at Messer Park. The field has a rubberized surface, so anyone can play. Athletes learn about the benefits of playing team sports while playing baseball, basketball or flag football. People of all abilities learn about healthy behaviors, have fun and make new friends in a safe, inclusive environment.

SportsAbility (April 9-11, 2015) gives people with disabilities, their families and friends first-hand access to archery, SCUBA, climbing wall, sit water skiing, kayaking, horseback riding and much more at no cost thanks to sponsors like ADS. People who attend SportsAbility learn how families that include people of all abilities can recreate together. It is a hands-on learning opportunity for parents, resource providers, people with disabilities and community organizations.
