ROCKY HILL, CT, -- Numotion is excited to announce a partnership with wheelchair basketball legend, Ryan Martin, and his sports based foundation.
Ryan Martin was born with Spina Bifida and had both his legs amputated when he was two years old. He discovered wheelchair basketball in his youth and excelled over the years, going on to play professionally in Spain and the U.S.
Realizing the profound, positive impact wheelchair basketball had on his own life, in 2011 Ryan founded the Ryan Martin Foundation with the mission "to help youth and adult athletes with disabilities live independent, impassioned, productive and full lives through sports training, mentoring and education."
Today the foundation offers youth mentoring and basketball camps, and is developing basketball camps in partnership with U.S. Army for soldiers living with new disabilities. Ryan also dedicates much of his time to motivational speaking appearances.
In 2015 Numotion will be a Platinum Camp sponsor and provide support for youth basketball camps.
"As a longtime user of Numotion equipment, I know they are a company of integrity, innovation and involvement. This collaboration expands the horizons of the Foundation, and we hope will lead more kids out on to the court, and on to success," said Ryan.
Scott Ritchotte, Area Vice President of Sales, added, "Numotion is proud and honored to establish a partnership with the Ryan Martin Foundation. Both organizations share common goals of promoting independence and quality of life for individuals with disabilities. Ryan is an exceptional mentor and leader; our collaborative goal for the partnership is to profoundly change people's lives in a positive and lasting manner."
"We wanted to team up with the Ryan Martin Foundation because the importance of the service and support they provide camp attendees is so clearly lasting and significant," said Mark Miller, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships of Numotion. "We are very excited to be able to contribute to the achievements of these young athletes."
Ryan will also be writing for Nuances, The Numotion Blog as a guest blogger.
