To celebrate Jewish Disability Awareness & Inclusion Month (JDAIM), we were thrilled to host our first community luncheon and welcome as our featured speaker, Steph “The Hammer” Hammerman. Born with cerebral palsy, Hammerman overcame many obstacles and through her dedication to a healthy lifestyle accomplished becoming a certified Level 2 CrossFit trainer. During her presentation, we learned that she is working towards Level 3. We also learned that Steph recently signed a deal to become a NIKE, Inc. Adaptive Athlete. Part of her role will be to consult on what it means to workout differently and ways to make fitness part of everyone’s lives. Thank you to everyone who joined us for a great afternoon!
Steph also presented a couple of days later. It was a full weekend of #JDAIM. Check out Steph’s speech from LimmudAZ.
Mark your calendars for next years luncheon February 8, 2019!
