Happy Holidays to all my readers! I hope this finds you well, enjoying the holiday season with your loved ones! I wanted to take a moment and catch people up with what I've been up to since my last blog, which seems so long ago!
I'm currently in Paris with my team as we have begun the season, struggling mighty. We've dealt with suspension and injuries, and have yet to hit our stride. The hope is after the new year we will finally get it going! In the wake of the tragedies of last month, and coming from a team that made it to the European Finals last season, personally, it has been a challenge living in Paris these last couple of months.
Over the past few weeks, I've had a busy travel schedule, including fitting in a trip to the United Nations to be part of their events for the "International Day of Person's with Disabilities."
I'm also excited to announce that the RMF junior program is off to a great start and has welcomed athletes from Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and New Hampshire. On January 2, 2016 we will be hosting a Holiday Wheelchair Basketball Jamboree in collaboration with our sponsor, Hospital for Special Care. I'm excited to announce registration is now complete and we are excited to welcome 24 athletes from all over the Northeast for the event!
Finally, the documentary, "The Ryan Martin Story," done by John Holt and Eric Budney over the past few summers will go "viral" on December 23rd, and it will be John Holt's entire "Sports Sunday Show" on December 27th!
Once again thanks for all the support and feedback this past year. Blogging has been a pleasure! Happy Holidays and a prosperous 2016!
