Scenes from the Gaylord Gauntlet #GreatStuff

Minutes before we both took to the mud-covered obstacle course, I presented an official state citation from the entire Wallingford delegation to this year’s Gaylord Gauntlet Featured Adaptive Athlete, Anthony Picchione.
Anthony, who was injured in a motorcycle crash, joined hundreds, including many other adaptive athletes to face mud, fire and even a zip line on the Gauntlet course, which according to the website is, “a blend of wooden trail and open field running with 24 natural and manmade obstacles.”

The annual event is run by Wallingford’s Gaylord Specialty Healthcare for the benefit of adaptive athletes and the Gaylord Sports Association, which offers individuals with permanent physical or visual disabilities the opportunity to compete in a variety of activities. I was happy to have Gaylord’s President and CEO Sonja LaBarbera join me for the presentation to Anthony.

Unlike last year, the weather this year was BEAUTIFUL with bright sun and warm temperatures for all participants. A GREAT DAY for one and all!
