High Sierra Industries to Hold X-treme Ability Challenge Next Month

Posted: Updated:

An event that limits a person's physical and mental abilities is returning to northern Nevada next month.
    
On Wednesday, High Sierra Industries announced that their X-treme Abilities Challenge will return on August 20th.
    
It's basically a relay course where teams are given physical limitations that imitates what it's like to live with disabilities. 

"To show the strengths of people with disabilities, the talents of people with disabilities, as opposed to, ‘oh poor them,' or some of the more stereotypical ways people with disabilities are presented,” says LaVonne Brooks, C.E.O. High Sierra Industries.

By the way, Kristen Remington and Landon Miller did the challenge today, and we'll show you how they did in Thursday’s Someone 2 Know.
