Monday, May 1 from 6-7 p.m., join us for an author talk with children’s author and Handi Capable Fitness founder James Norris. He is the author of the book “Feeling Left Out” – the first book in a four-part series to help children deal with the challenges they face while growing up. In the book, Norris utilizes his challenges and his journey living with cerebral palsy to write this personal and deeply empathetic story for children and adults alike. Come by to learn about that journey and the ways his experience can provide resources and instruction on living a healthier and more resilient lifestyle.
James is a fitness advocate and mentor, an athlete, an author and a public speaker. He has shared his message of accessible fitness and adaptive athletic technology to a number of platforms, including podcasts, social media and public speaking engagements. His advocacy and messages of inspiration encourage athletes to step outside of their comfort zone and face adversity with confidence and resilience.
His foundation, Handi Capable Fitness, provides scholarship funding. HCF is able to provide much-needed funding for fitness memberships, athletic equipment and travel for its adaptive athletic community.
