Adaptive sports showcased in Jessamine County

Nicholasville, Ky. (WKYT) – Saturday, dozens of folks paid a visit to the Jessamine County Public Library to check out the Adaptive Sports & Recreation Expo.

The expo was put on by Raymond Jones and his daughter. Jones said this event provides an opportunity for the physically challenged and able-bodied alike, to get hands-on experience with sports and recreations that are available in the area.

Those activities included sled hockey, wheelchair tennis, adapted bocce ball and wheelchair racing. They also had an adapted equine program.

"I want to be able to get out and do stuff, but there is not a lot of things to do and I wanted to know more about what I was capable of doing,"
explained 13 year-old Trenton Angell.

Angell says he is really interested in wheelchair racing.

"What were saying the people is don’t let your disability define you. Find a place, plug into something and find out really what can you do you may find that you have possibilities you never dreamed of," said Jones.
