Pushing for wheelers in Missoula Marathon

JSF Missoula Marathon

Joe Stone representing JSF at Missoula Marathon meeting

This is a big day for Missoula and the Joe Stone Foundation! As of this morning Run Wild Missoula finally is allowing racing wheelchairs, hand cycles, and dual teams in the 2014 Missoula Marathon!

It has been a bit of a bumpy road but after some time we are finally here and people with disabilities are finally accepted! This is one of the most meaningful projects I have ever been a part of. I want to thank everybody who has helped and supported us along the way. Thank you sooo much!!!!!!!!!:)

Check out the article in the Missoulian this morning about wheelchair users finally being accepted in the Missoula Marathon again. It’s a small step forward for disability rights and a big step forward for the Joe Stone Foundation!!!
