Noah's dream is to bring better adaptive sports to Native people with disabilities, and show them what is possible as a person with a disability.
Native Americans have the highest per capita disability rate in the U.S. and yet there are almost no programs on the reservations for adaptive sports. Noah knows about this firsthand, as he was injured in an accident as a child, and now uses a wheelchair. He has had the chance participate in all kinds of adaptive sports from basketball to skiing and white water rafting, and he wants to provide the opportunity for other Native people.
In order to accomplish this, Noah will be hosting four basketball camps for Native people with disabilities. The camps will include instructive clinics and exhibition games. They will take place in different areas spanning New Mexico, Colorado & Arizona.
