As we get closer to game day, I’m particularly energized by the work I’ve been doing for the National Football League to ensure people with disabilities are able to attend and enjoy the Super Bowl. Creating this inclusive opportunity for people with disabilities gives them more choices when it comes to how they spend their disposable income.
At any point in time, an individual could find they need accessible accommodations, whether it’s a parent pushing a stroller or a Baby Boomer facing knee pain. These circumstances may slow us down, but accessible accommodations allow us to fully enjoy and participate in the experience at hand. That might be a visit to The Children’s Museum or the Super Bowl. It’s an important illustration of how people with disabilities – and those facing similar conditions – add to our collective economic bottom line.
