Local Physically Challenged Athlete Awarded Funding Grant to Make her Athletic Dreams Come True
Adria Di Maria embraces her dream to shine in the world of equestrians dressage despite her life long battle with Polio and its unfortunate affects. Her dream is to become a successful equestrian paralympian and to ultimately represent the United States internationally. Adria’s philosophy is “it is the ability that counts...not the disability”. Adria is passionate about this journey and will do everything possible to reach her goal. Her greatest challenge is not her disability, although it is very real, but the funds to make becoming a Paralympic equestrian happen.
It is the mission of the Challenged Athlete Foundation to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through competitive athletics. It is CAF’s vision to be recognized as a leader in the movement through which physical challenged athletes are accepted and respected at the same level as able body athletes.
If you would like to support this special woman in her quest to represent the United States at the state, national and international dressage competitions for people with disabilities, please join Challenged Athletes Foundation
