Ronnie Dickson’s Red River Canyon Climbing Trip, 12/2011

Here’s a few photos from POA’s Ronnie “Spider Man” Dickson during a recent climbing trip to Red River Gorge, a canyon system on the Red River in east-central Kentucky. This canyon system features an abundance of sandstone cliffs, rock shelters, waterfalls and natural bridges, making it one of the world’s most popular and challenging climbing destinations. Ronnie, an above-knee amputee, makes it look easy!

POA’s Bree McMahon Gives Water Skiing a Try!, 11/26/2011

The McMahon family has much to be thankful for this holiday season. Last weekend they celebrated yet another “first” for Bree since the 2009 accident that resulted in the amputation of one leg above the knee and almost took the other — she waterskied with a special prosthetic leg adapted for use in the water! And of course, in true Bree style, she got up on her first try! Congratulations, Bree! You continue to inspire us and make us proud! Click here to read more about Bree
