Teen Makes Disability History At Mount Everest
March 26th, 2013 - A 15-year-old with Down syndrome is said to be the first American with the chromosomal disorder to make it to the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain. For 10 days, Eli Reimer trekked rugged terrain in below-freezing temperatures to make it to the base of Mt. Everest. Traveling along with his father, Justin, and six others, the Oregon teen ultimately reached an elevation of 17,000 feet. Reimer was the first of his group to reach base camp, making history with his physical feat. “I hope that this encourages people to get the concept that we’re all created uniquely and even though my son is disabled, he’s still a gift to those around him,” Justin Reimer told TODAY. “I think for Eli, it was just another fun day on the trail.”


SaMo Makes Wheelchair-Friendly Boardwalk Out of 5,000 Tires
March 25th, 2013 - Everyone should be able to get a closeup on the sun setting over the Pacific, right? SaMo made that happen by building a "boardwalk to the sea," a wheelchair-accessible path just north of the Santa Monica Pier, from 5,000 used tires. The "crumb rubber" path allows "individuals with disabilities access to the sea at high tide," according to a statement from the city. The tires - otherwise headed for landfills and incinerators--instead became 298 rubber planks, with extra rubber used to build "dumpster bumpers," which cover large trash bins and prevent scratches on buildings and vehicles. The tires also gave their lives to become curb ramps for the city, which make it easier for waste collectors to haul away big bins.


Beauty Queen With Autism Makes Miss America History
January 15th, 2013 - She didn’t walk away with the crown, but Alexis Wineman knows she topped the American public’s list for Miss America. Alexis Wineman, 18, the first Miss America contestant with autism, won an online vote to be selected as “America’s Choice.” She beat out the other 52 contestants in an online vote that took place in the weeks leading up to the event. She enjoyed the opportunity to make so many new friends during the competition. But what brought the most joy to Wineman while competing for the Miss America crown was the chance to share her story, and through that, to open people’s eyes to what is possible. Though the big day is over, Wineman won’t be settling down anytime soon, with speaking engagements lined up until her reign as Miss Montana comes to an end in June.
