In almost every household, you will find someone with a disability,” said Mackey-Hines, who holds a doctorate in organizational development. “I suffer from multiple sclerosis, and some days I walk normally, and on other days, I can hardly walk at all. It’s wonderful that there is going to be a place where I can enjoy physical activities on both good days and bad days, and not be looked at differently just because I have a handicap.
