I don’t ever want to forget the ‘moment’ of our first trailer. In 2009 our dear friend, Tommy York, went on a search to find a double-axle, three-quarter inch plywood trailer to purchase with a small grant we won.
Fiona Allen was part of our dynamic duo. She went with Tommy to pick up the trailer. As a horse lover and competitive rider, Fiona knew how to pull a trailer and park it on a dime!
Upon their arrival at the first Bridge II Sports office, I was waiting with anticipation! I remember the joy on Fiona‘s face that we had a trailer to transport equipment to and from programs.
At that time, Blue (our truck) and my white van were the main transport. Fiona and I would load and unload each time for every program. We were beginning to feel the growing pains of success and needed more storage. The new trailer would house the sports chairs saving energy and space … a wonderful gift!
The trailer was pulled to tournaments in multiple states, adapted sports demonstrations at multiple locations, we visited schools across North Carolina, and, of course, it was a regular at weekly practices. Serving and being seen by tens of thousands.
We felt the pride of being part of something. Our logo with her iconic figures representing cross-disabilities playing sport! We are here!
