Disability Advocate Says Active Living Is Important For All

The Rick Hansen Relay is cutting through Saint John and the surrounding areas over the next few days and local disability advocate Jeff Sparks says they are sending a fantastic message.

Sparks tells CHSJ News the relay gets out a very important concept -- disabled people still partake in physical activity because it's important to them both physically and spiritually.

He says it will also educate the public that those who are a disabled still love to pursue active living and with a few minor accommodations,  they can participate in many activities.
